Catherine Denial
Assistant Professor of History

My office, which sits looking out over the same piece of land Lincoln and Douglas faced in their fifth debate. From my window I can see students walking between classes, professors and staff members on their way to and from work, students practicing yoga, and dance, and fencing.

I love being able to stand on the last existing site of the Lincoln-Douglas debates

Linda Lobik '79

A sense of history, for both Knox and Galesburg, which would strike me every time I walked past Old Main and saw the plaque commemorating the Lincoln Douglas Debate; traveling to Carl Sandburg's birthplace, not far off campus; and even walking on the brick sidewalks.

Ward Knockemus '55

I love Knox because it's a Lincoln-Douglas debate site. I always sit on the Lincoln bench when I visit!
