George Peabody Building

 The George Peabody Education Fund  enabled the construction of the Education Building, dedicated in 1912.  It housed the School of Education until 1956 when it became home to psychology.  The building was used to house students for a short period following World War I.
 The nomination of the Lyceum-Circle for national historic district said this of the building:
...alludes to Classical designs with its pediment, entablature, and four fluted Ionic columns..wrap-around stone parapet encircles the top of the brick building...
