Memorial University Plaque
PRINT THIS INFORMATION
The SUVCW operated Memorial University in Mason City from 1902 until 1910. The building was then used by the school district until torn down in 1979. Today, the school district administration building is on this site. A plaque was dedicated here on January 24, 2015 with information about the history of Memorial University. Credit goes to SUVCW member Jim Wolf and the Huntley Camp in Mason City for their efforts to obtain funds for the plaque. It is interesting that the SUVCW has developed an educational program for members using the Memorial University name. SUVCW members attending the dedication were, left to right, Ken Lindblom, Kevin Pearson, David Thompson, Jim Wolf, Danny Krock, and Dennis Sasse. Thank you to Denise Sasse for this photo. Also, thank you to Danny Krock for furnishing the old postcards of the University. The location of the building is 1515 South Pennsylvania in Mason City.
