Can you identify this photograph? We couldn’t, but the helpful caption on page 22 of Dr. Jerry Sanson’s LSU Alexandria: Celebrating 50 Years, 1960-2010, reminded us that these were the “Temporary Buildings” that were still in use on campus at the time of the publication of Dr. Sanson’s book. They have since been repurposed and classes no longer meet there. If you’d like a copy of this book, contact the archives. University Records
