MacArthur visits Lawrence Tech

"The Lawrence Tech campus was greatly honored in the spring of 1952 by a visit from the great general and national hero, Douglas MacArthur. A large crowd was on hand to welcome the general and gave him a loud ovation after his short speech. The school was decorated in a regal fashion with a huge American flag draped over the front and a large sign reading 'Welcome General MacArthur'."
