“Social and Industrial History of Indiana, ” by artist Thomas Hart Benton, was commissioned for the Indiana Hall at the 1932 Chicago World’s Fair and was acquired by IU during the presidency of Herman B Wells. The entire mural has rarely inspired indifference, and one of its panels, installed separately in a lecture room at Woodburn Hall on the Bloomington campus, has been a perennial point of controversy.
