The history of Spooner Hall in black and white pictures and words from construction to today.
“Many people wonder which is the best building on campus. It’s a popular question to ask the architectural faculty. Although I don’t have any idea about what they may mean by `best,’ I have always given the same answer: Spooner Hall. Even before I went inside Spooner, I could see that it was a building of distinction. It is well proportioned, and it is evident from the way that it has adapted and survived that it has a good bone structure.”
— Barry Newton, KU Professor of Architecture
