Harvard University, established in 1638, is America’s first college and one of the most prestigious universities in the world. Steeped in tradition and famous for its unique American Colonial campus, Harvard features pre-Revolutionary, colonial, and classical buildings as well as more recent architectural works by José Luis Sert, Le Corbusier, and Walter Gropius. Harvard University: The Campus Guide by historian and alumnus Douglass Shand-Tucci offers an insider’s view to America’s oldest college across four centuries and a guided tour of its landmark buildings. Included are the eighteenth-century Massachusetts and Harvard Halls; nineteenth-century works by Charles Bulfinch and Henry Hobson Richardson; twentieth-century designs by McKim, Mead & White; and twenty-first-century designs by James Stirling and Renzo Piano.
