A photographic copy of an architectural drawing of alterations and additions planned for the rear of the John W. Brister Library at Memphis State College in 1951. The drawing was by S.H. Gurney and the architects were Daniel T. McGown (architect), John W. Hunt and Clarence H. Fisher (associates). The library was built in 1929 and named after John Willard Brister (1867-1939), the second president of West Tennessee State Normal School (1913-1918, 1924-1939) which became West Tennessee State Teachers College under his leadership in 1925.
