Do you or your family have any artifacts that may have been part of the collection in Grand Hall?
Most of these artifacts, objects, and curiosities were moved out of Grand Hall in the late 1940s as the University was under stress to create new space for recently returned GIs from World War Two. Some of the objects were retained by the university, while many other objects were given to friends of SLU or employees who assisted in clearing out the space.
This project seeks to rebuild the collection, either by asking for individuals to donate the items back to SLU or by simply allowing us to take photographs of the objects to include in this virtual recreation.
