Indianola Bus. School/Tecumseh College 1917

Is there anyone that has any information about the old Business School at Tecumseh? It was sold/given to the FWB
Church for a college, which opened, I think ca. 1917 and continued as a liberal arts school until about 1927, when it burned. Could there be a newspaper story about it?

I have a photocopied photo of the old brick bldg. I'm looking for anything at all about it, and particularly, some of the later teachers, perhaps from the 1920's until it burned. Particularly, one named Dr. I.W. Yandell.

I'm not close enough to search in the County archives in Shawnee, which I think may contain some information. I'd be so grateful, and reimburse your expense. w. yandell
