Building the Parkland College Campus

Building the Parkland College Campus

Although Parkland College had been offering classes since 1967, it wasn't until September of 1973 that the permanent campus on Bradley Avenue in Champaign, Illinois, was opened to students and community. The educational complex was designed by architect firm Ernest J. Kump Associates, based in Palo Alto, California. The company was well known for its innovative design of educational buildings. This collection contains photos and documents relating to the initial planning, construction, and completion of the building's first two phases: Phase I, wings B, C, L, and M, and Phase II, the X wing that connected the wings. Phase III, the gymansiam, completed in 1976, is also featured.
