Abstract

The Administration Building is the centerpiece of the Northwest Missouri State University campus. The Administration Building started as the center of all campus activity and as the school grew, the function of the building changed. Because the iconic towers of the Collegiate-Gothic building remain the symbol of a growing and changing institution, the Administration Building deserves placement on the National Register of Historic Places. This thesis has three components: an architectural description, an expanded historical narrative, and the nomination for the Administration Building, which upon completion will be submitted to the Missouri State Historic Preservation Office to nominate the building to the National Register of Historic Places.
