In USLSS history this stands out as very unique. There is a telling statement I found in text on another Northwestern website that is disappointing but not surprising.

"The University bought the building for $20 [from the CG] and converted it to the Northwestern men's student union. It later housed psychology offices and commerce classes. In 1954, the 78-year-old building was razed to make room for landscaping of the new Kresge Centennial Hall.

Razed to make room for landscaping! How very sad.

This site has several pictures of the crew, the first and second station and the boats.

I read the posted sites and watched the little picture film. What a story! It was very sad to find what happened to this LSS. Also that the stone with the names of the crew was removed and no where to be found.

So folks please take the time to read and watch about this LSS it will be well worth it.
