Harold Grosowsky • “Mr. G.” Harold came to Southern Illinois in 1960 from the Institute of Design in Chicago. He came into his own a few years later as the instructor of the General Studies 205 Design class. 205 reached a broad audience with it’s large lectures, 3-screen slide-tape presentations, and well designed classroom structure. Mr. G. stories are endless. Most of them feature Harold teaching a student to think for him or herself. He was known for his sailor caps, his beard, and humor.
