Is that Woods Hall?
"Show class, have pride, and display character. If you do, winning takes care of itself." -Coach Bryant
I graduated in 1974. I have a recurring nightmare (a couple of times per year) about showing up for an English class in Woods Hall, taught by Dr. Edith Lindsay. It is final exam day, and I haven't been to class since the first day when the prospectus was handed out. Any pop psychs out there want to help me out? (g)

Bingo, that is Woods Hall, and if you look closely you can see the Corps Of Cadets in front, assembled for review!
Woods Quad, the area in front of the building, was the location of the Original Rotunda. The foundation is still there.
I had a class in that old building. Old military barracks, IIRC.

Very common dream. I have similar ones involving HS exams, law school exams, not knowing my locker combination, etc.

Okay, I read the info on the Link, is that you?
Wow; thanks for the reply. Very interesting article, too. I had Dr. Lindsay for three different classes. Tom Huey, one of my suitemates at the time was two years ahead of me and a real star student in the department; he would go on to become an accomplished playwright and longtime professor at UNC and Guilford College. He actually kept a room at a boarding house so that he could write in peace, but would take his meals with all of us. On many occasions I would make sure to eat breakfast with him in order to get his comments on a particular story or poem which I knew we would be discussing that morning in Dr. Lindsay's class. She was always happy to hear my/our insights in class but would never fail to give credit where credit was due with a wry, "I see you had breakfast with Mr. Huey today; please give him my regards". Credit to me for at least putting forth the effort to study the material; credit to Tom for actually having a bright perspective on the subject.
Woods Hall long ago, and Woods Hall today.
Woods Hall, built between 1867 and 1868, was named Alva Woods Hall in 1884 in honor of UA's first president and was the first building constructed after the Civil War. Prior to 1884 it was just called the "barracks". It was first used a dorm for military cadets, but also held classes and a dining hall on the ground floor. It was constructed out of the bricks from the buildings which were destroyed in the Civil War as well as new bricks that were shipped in.
Originally the plan called for a large military style building, but because of the budget only the rear half was actually constructed. It was the main building on campus for 15 years until the financial situation improved enough to allow Manly and Clark Halls to be built. By that time the architectural style of the planned Woods Hall was considered outdated and new building designs were used.
In 1966, the students discovered that the University was considering demolishing Woods Hall in order to build the Ferguson Center. They immediately launched a "Save Woods Hall" campaign and the new building was instead built behind Woods where Dressler Hall, a gymnasium that was destroyed by arsonists in 1970, once stood. In 1975 Woods Hall was remodeled and the wooden porches were rebuilt with concrete and steel while the iron railings were reinforced and raised to meet safety codes
In the early sixties there was a sandwich shop on the ground floor in the NW corner. It was frequented by the unusual combination of Engineers (nerds) and Art students.( hippies). Looked like a scene from Forrest Gump.
