  1. Thanks for the pics. I spent two summers at Shadow Lawn in 1948-50. I remember it vividly and Dr. Lehman, too. Does the building still exist? I’d love to see it!

    • Yes they do! I took all those pictures this year. It serves as the English dept offices in the servants wing and the bedrooms are classrooms and offices. Most of my English classes were in this building. Monmouth university calls it Wilson Hall.
