Some Interesting Images

An old postcard drawing of the MMI Chapel.

An excellent view of the MMI Chapel from the 1960s or 1970s.

The graves of James Thomas Murfee (1833-1912), founder and first president of MMI, and his wife, Laura Owen (1841-1920), in the Marion city cemetery.

To the right of the Murfee marker are three smaller graves of their children who died early. (I believe there are three graves and not six!)

The back of the Murfee marker: The Bible verse reads “There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.” Hebrews 4.9 (thanks COL Stanley Bamberg!).

An announcement for a Concert Band and Cadet Chorus concert in the MMI Chapel on December 14, 1967: “A Feast of Carols.”

An unidentified but dapper young cadet, circa 1920.

The official invitation to the Inauguration of George Bush and Dan Quayle on January 20, 1989, in Washington, D. C.
