North's history is a long and illustrious one, starting all the way in 1888. We decided that we couldn't research all of its history with the quality that North deserves. Our decision to represent only the newest building's history was based on the need to focus our research and also gather information that hasn't had a chance to be archived. In initial meetings, we realized that there was a wealth of information prior to our time period, but new information was significantly missing from the historical record. We realized this most of all when we went to look for a picture of the current North building and couldn't find one. Not in photo archives or even online. There are many stories to tell about North, and it has a fascinating history waiting to be told. We hope that this project is just the tip of the iceberg.
