Campus plan 1908

The Boston architectural firm of Cooper and Bailey were hired to draft a campus plan in 1908, which featured a dramatic, but never-to-be-realized alteration of the campus pond, a new “agricultural group” of buildings on the northwestern edge of campus, and a set of new buildings on the hill flanking a new administration building. North is to the left in their rendering of campus.
