The Schaeffers On the Road Again

This is a list of places we visited during our trip to Illinois during August 2000
See Panoramic view of Monmouth College

"Browsing around the Web, we recently came across an interesting page by Lee Schaeffer '65, a videographer in Pittsburgh, Pa.  It's a rotating panoramic view taken last August from the southwest corner of Bobby Woll Memorial Field during a vacation to Illinois. It's especially interesting because it shows the field just prior to renovations that included installing a new running track and the construction of Boucher Plaza, just north of the library and science building."
