Lost North Central 2021

In 2000, archivist Kimberly Jacobsen Butler wrote an article for the North Central College alumni magazine about buildings on campus that no longer existed. She called it “Lost North Central” after the book Lost Chicago. 21 years later, the campus has changed further, and it seems only fitting to revisit Butler’s concept of “Lost North Central." Learn the stories of the campus museum, the college’s first coffee house, and a much-loved student dormitory, all of which had to make way as the campus grew and changed.
