I’m particularly interested in rooms number 27 and 37 in the diagram above. The “Rest Room” (room 37) opened onto the courtyard. One faculty member, who began working at LBCC in the 1950s, reports that the room was reserved for female faculty so that they might retreat from the hubbub of the college and that she would take naps there during the day. Nothing so civilized has been planned for the renovation, and this entire block will now become the restrooms.
We don’t have any eyewitness accounts of the “Men Teachers” (room 27), so we can only assume that it served some similar purpose for the “men teachers” among the faculty. For at least 20 years, it has served as faculty office space.
