Description: Photograph of the Administration Building and McConnell Memorial Tower from the north, from the stairs in front of what is now Sycamore Hall, previously the Information Science Building. Standing and sitting on the steps can be seen students talking. The Administration Building was constructed in 1956, and in 2002 was renamed the Hurley Administration Building in honor of retiring Chancellor and former President of UNT Dr. Alfred F. Hurley. In this photograph, the clock tower, which was named the McConnell Memorial Tower in honor of W. Joseph McConnell, President of North Texas State Teachers College from 1934 to 1951, has a clock face on the north side only. The east, south, and west clock faces were not installed until May 1974, dating this image to between 1956 and 1974, most likely taken in the early 1960s.
