Founded in 1857 and originally a teacher’s college, Illinois State University is currently home to around 23,000 students and faculty, as well as one tenacious ghost. This ghost is said to be that of Angeline V. Milner, or Ange for short, a librarian who remained with her books long after she passed from this world. Since at least the 1980s, staff members working in the Williams Hall archives have reported encounters with what they believe is Miss Milner’s ghost. Employees have reported eerie feelings, sightings of mist or fog, and even discovered books that inexplicably fell from the shelves.
