Well, it’s that time of year when if I stay just the slightest bit late, the office gets a little creepy. Shadows seem more sinister; the creaky floors sound spookier and I jump at the thump of the furnace kicking on. In a building that’s more than 100 years old, everything seems a little scary after dark. I’ve written before about the strange goings on in Olds Hall, and I’m still not convinced the place isn’t haunted. I’ve moved into a new space this year – down to the wing where I’ve heard phantom footsteps and doors slamming, so that’s cool. You might not know, but Olds Hall is actually a rebuild of an almost identical structure that burned down in 1916 and was rebuilt in 1917, using a private donation from Ransom E. Olds of Oldsmobile. It was originally the Engineering Building but now houses a random collection of offices and classrooms. Exactly 100 years of the day of that fire, I was at a conference out of town when a colleague back on campus texted to tell me that they had to evacuate the building when the fire alarms went off. While it wasn’t a major fire, just some burned popcorn that set off the sensors, it happened in exactly the same place where the fire started a century before. Coincidence? Or maybe something strange happened that day. Whatever the case, it still sends a shiver up my spine when I look at the photo of the building burning. It makes me feel like I’m working in some weird time-travelling portal or parallel universe.View story photos
Mark Auslander: Resonance and wonder
Of all the objects on display in MSU’s Museum, perhaps none so remarkably combines “resonance” and “wonder” as the great brown bear, towering over all the other taxidermy specimens in the second floor’s Hall of Evolution and Adaptation. At 10 and a half feet tall, it ranks among the largest brown bear specimens on display in any museum.View story photos
