Synopsis: The colonial facade and weathered brick of the New England college and university campus is one of the most enduring and iconic of all American images, but the architectural genre has rarely been studied across institutions.
In this lavishly illustrated and insightful study of antebellum college architecture, Bryant F. Tolles, Jr., discusses the historic New England origins and development of college building design and campus planning principles, finding profound similarities in collegiate architecture in the region, along with equally important deviations and institutional idiosyncrasies.
Focusing on the architecture and related history of individual buildings, their functions, and their interrelationships with the other buildings of their respective campus environments, Tolles has written a fascinating and accessible guide to New England college architecture for the interested lay reader and scholar, and a must-have for regional libraries and architectural collections.

Colleges covered include:
Amherst, Bates, Bowdoin, Brown, Colby, Dartmouth, Harvard, Holy Cross, Middlebury, Norwich, Trinity, Tufts, Yale, Wesleyan, Williams and University of Vermont.

About the Author: BRYANT F. TOLLES, JR., is professor emeritus of history and art history at the University of Delaware. He has written and edited many books, including Summer Cottages in the White Mountains, Resort Hotels of the Adirondacks, and Summer by the Seaside: The Architecture of New England Coastal Resort Hotels.
