Knock, knock . . .
Chances are youve passed this door or may have even crossed over its threshold . . . but do you remember where its located? Each week the Record will snap a stoop. See if you can guess where it is. If you cant get a handle on its location, check out the answer in the next Record. (Photo by Bill Wood, U-M Photo Services)
Answer from Nov. 19 isssue
If this door from the Nov. 19 issue looks familiar, its probably because youve passed it dozens of times on State Street. Its the entrance to the Kelsey Museum of Archeology. Housed in Newberry Hall, the structure was originally built as a home for the Student Christian Association in 1888. In the early 1920s the association leased the hall to the University for classroom space. Eight years later, the Universitys archaeological collections were moved into the building and it was eventually sold to the school and renamed after Francis Kelsey, a former professor of Latin and of literature.
