Former River Fallsite James Bohn sent this photo of the Campus Nursery School class of 1952 to Katie Chaffee, event and gallery coordinator at the River Falls Public Library. Jim is on the far left third row, with teacher Peg (Wells) Steinmetz next to him. On Thursday, Aug. 14, starting at 7 p.m. River Falls Public Library UWRF history and philosophy prof. Kurt Leichtle will be leading an evening of oral history reminisces of North Hall.

North Hall housed the Teaching Lab School as well as serving as a hub for campus activity until the late 1960s

. All are welcome to share their memories. Chaffee encourages the public to bring in any photos with identifying information for display.
