After WWII, 1945, many military men were coming back to go to college on the GI bill so colleges had to build temporary dorms to house the influx. Mizzou was no exception...but some of those "temporary dorms" lasted longer that anticipated. So in 1958, as I entered college, Mizzou was in the middle of dorm growth. There were three "hi rise" dorms being built...top of the line, but unfortunately not completed by the time the semester was to begin! So those of us who were to be assigned to the new dorms were assigned to the temporary, barrack-like dorms! This picture is not the dorms we had but they are very similar...wood frame, one story...ours were a little longer and there were only two sets of them side by side.
