Book says Old Main designed with Freemasonry architectural symbols

From the Register-Mail:

Knox College’s Old Main is the only original building that remains from the Lincoln Douglas Debates. But Knox philosophy professor Lance Factor set out to prove that the building itself has its own historic importance.

“It has its own identity, it has its own story,” Factor said.

In his newly-released book “Chapel in the Sky: Knox College’s Old Main and Its Masonic Architect,” Factor shows how the national historic landmark was designed with the architectural techniques and symbols of Freemasonry at a time when Galesburg was heavily anti-Masonic.
