University was named after Reverend Phillip Otterbein who was founder of the religious group in the late 18th century The university is the second oldest coeducational school in the United States and is not far from Columbus Ohio The four year liberal arts college is well known for it theatrical arts program The building depicted in the print is an excellent example of Victorian Gothic architecture Known today as Towers Hall it was built in 1871 following a fire that consumed the previous building In 1982 Towers Hall was restored and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places This print was produced in Cincinnati by Strobridge Company who can trace its roots to 1849 to the founding of Elijah Middleton s print publishing enterprise Middleton began producing lithographs in the 1850s shortly before Hines Strobridge joined the firm in 1855 Strobridge achieved partnership in 1859 and took over the company completely in 1861 Producing battle prints for national sale the firm thrived during the Civil War Suffering a devastating fire in 1865 the company rebounded by making its printing processes even more efficient for high volume commercial

historical document and a colorful decorative image 975 University of Pennsylvania None currently available Pennsylvania State University Richard Rummell The Pennsylvania State College Penn State Published in New York by Littig Company 1910 Photogravure Uncolored as issued Very good to excellent condition At the turn of the century a small New York art publisher Littig Company commissioned various artists to create a series of watercolor paintings of some of the nations most prestigious colleges and schools From these water colors engravings in photogravure were made on copper plates and distriubuted in limited number to the various schools and to a few art dealers throughout the country Many may still be seen in the Administration building and in the offices of the Deans in many of the region s finest schools These prints differs widely from other college prints in their panoramic quality indeed in many cases they offer the only panoramic views available today Each artist visited a campus and conferred with the Administration about future buildings authorized for the school He would then draw these projected buildings into the campus scene which was projected from an apparent altitude of about 300 feet In some cases this gives the viewer the impression that the scene was painted perhaps ten years later On a few occasions building plans were subsequently altered which resulted in an inaccurate depiction of the college Many find these minor alterations historically interesting and amusing 750 Princeton University College of New Jersey at Princeton From History
