All about Ange

mchistory.org

Ange Milner was one of the first librarians on ISU's campus. She dedicated her life to her books and helping students. After her death in 1928, it is said that she came back to haunt the books she so dearly cared for.

While Ange was at ISU, Old Union was a library for students and staff. As the library began reaching full capacity, it was decided to move the extra books to Williams Hall.

Sightings of the ghost

Several students recall a sense of not being alone while inside of the building. This picture was taken on the third floor where many students say they have seen Ange from time to time.

When books are moved or transported out of Williams Hall, it's said that strange things begin to happen. It is clear that Ange still cares about her books.

In honor of Ange Milner, when Williams Hall was first constructed it was dedicated as the campus library and named after Ange Milner. Today, Milner library has a new location, which is located across from the Bone Student Center. However, Williams Hall is still home to some of Ange's old books.

We hope you had a spook-tacular time reading our ghost story, #FutureRedbird. Thanks for tuning in, and we can't wait for you to check out Williams Hall next year!
