Title

Old Main and military corps review, 1895

Description

Old Main as the setting for a military corps review. Men's and women's corps are at attention. Military service for male students was mandatory between 1868 through 1962. For women, training was offered from 1878 through 1897. Three cannon are in the formation. An audience is on the stairs and front porch of Old Main.
Old Main was constructed between 1864-1868, and served as the main college building for Iowa State. It housed classrooms, the library, chapel, museums, dining halls, and was the residence for faculty and students. It burned in 1900, and the remaining parts of the building were completely destroyed by a second fire in 1902.
