Benjamin Franklin, founder of America's first university, the University of Pennsylvania, hoped that its students would learn "everything that is useful and everything that is ornamental." The same might be said of the architecture of its campus, both useful and ornamental. The newest title in our highly acclaimed Campus Guide Series takes readers on an insider's tour of this historic school, unique in the Ivy League for its single urban campus. The guide presents architectural walks of a campus that is distinguished by landmark buildings. Thomas traces the university's rich history from its founding in 1749 to the present wave of construction on the modern campus. Hand-colored maps and detailed descriptions of the buildings guide to readers on their tour.
George E. Thomas lectures at the University of Pennsylvania on historic preservation and urban studies. His numerous publications include William L. Price and Frank Furness: The Complete Works.
