VISITORS MAY PASS BY this structure without a second glance, but it holds a special place in my heart. Once upon a time it was quarters for DuPont family servants. But in 1966 it was used as college student housing for Horticulture Interns. I was one of those interns during this summer of 1966, along with 12 others from around the U.S. and South Africa. My room was the third and fourth windows from the left. In 2011, we found that those rooms are used for storage (summer interns now have more modern quarters elsewhere). In 1966 I was a Landscape Horticulture major at Colorado State University.
