The Old North Building
Beginning in the early 1950s Brigham Young University used a number of temporary buildings to accommodate the increasing student population. These buildings were removed from campus between 1959 and 1963 to make way for the construction of modern buildings designed to meet the needs of the growing campus. This image is of the old North Building which housed the Journalism Department, the Department of Sociology, the News Bureau, and the much of the College of Business. The Harold B. Lee Library would later be constructed on the former site of the North Building.
