A bookcase nicknamed the “Morrison Monster” has been returned to Wichita State University after being gone for more than a century. The bookcase, which weighs several hundred pounds, was made for Fairmount College president Nathan Morrison. He envisioned a library that would physically and academically be the focal point of the college. Fairmount evolved into WSU. The Morrison family recently donated the bookcase back to WSU.
