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. and 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). Five carefully considered tours put the architectural history of the campus into context. The walks are illustrated with beautiful new photography as well as historic images from the University's archives.
