Frescoes in Old Main

Anne Varnum Poor, daughter of artist Henry Varnum Poor, adds fresh plaster to one of Penn State's Land-Grant Frescoes in the Old Main lobby in this 1947 photograph as staff from the Penn State's film unit (Delmar Duvall at camera and Edward Leos directing) prepare to record the completion of the mural. The Land-Grant Frescoes grace the upper walls of Old Main lobby and pay tribute to Penn State's role as the Commonwealth's Land-Grant University.
