3 From the Hill
ON THE COVER: A newspaper critic
called it William R. Davie's "Temple of
Folly," and for its first 14 years, Main
Building, as it was known, appeared to
live up to the name. Left without a
roof and with only I of its three floors completed,
it sat forlornly from 1798 until 1812, when the money to finish it
finally was raised. Now marking its 200th year, South Building has
been home to the University's administration exclusively since its
renovation in 1927. Story, Page 16. Illustration by Kathe Vaughan
