Linda Eoline Landon (1856–1942) was the first female instructor at M.A.C., its “beloved librarian” beginning in 1891, and “presided for a third of a century over a growing collection of books and periodicals that was one of the best among independent land-grant colleges.” The library’s rapid growth during her reign resulted in the building of a brand-new Library in 1924.[Kestenbaum, p. 60]

Mrs. Linda E. Landon “presides” in the Library–Museum circa 1896.

Linda Landon moved to this house when it was new around 1919. At the time it was numbered 409 Grove Street, until a street numbering revision the following year. Prior to living here, Landon first lived in a house on the Delta, and then an apartment in Howard Terrace.
