U of I Names New Residence Hall
The University of Illinois' Urbana-Champaign campus will have a new residence hall next fall, and it will be named for the first African-American woman to graduate from the school.
The new hall will honor Maudelle Tanner Brown Bousfield. Bousfield graduated with honors from the university in 1906 and went on to teach high school math in Baltimore, Chicago, and East St. Louis. She also became the first African-American principal in Chicago's public schools in 1928.
