The newest title in our Campus Guide series takes
readers on an architectural tour of University of
Massachusetts Amherst. As one of the nation’s oldest
public universities, and the largest in the Northeast,
the University has a rich and storied history. Initially
chartered as the Massachusetts Agricultural College,
the school has grown from fifty farmers to close
to 24,000 students of diverse backgrounds and
academic interests. The University’s campus has also
expectedly experienced parallel growth. From a few
barns on the Berkshire foothills, the University now
sits atop nearly 1,500 acres. Five carefully considered
tours put the architectural history of the campus
into context.


• The first architectural history of the University of
Massachusetts Amherst

• Campus includes many midcentury modern gems,
including the Fine Arts Center (Kevin Roche John
Dinkeloo and Associates), Herter Hall (Coletti
Brothers), and the W. E. B. Du Bois Library (Edward
Durell Stone)

• Walks are illustrated with beautiful new photography
as well as historic images from the University’s
archives
