Organized as a series of walks through the distinct neighborhoods of Dartmouth College and parts of the surrounding town of Hanover, New Hampshire, The Campus Guide: Dartmouth College provides an intimate view of one of the most unique and picturesque Ivy League campuses. It contains a comprehensive illustration of today's campus and charts its historic evolution from a small school in the wilderness to the last college granted a Royal charter before the Revolution. Dartmouth College is architecturally distinguished by such unique features as its central Green, which dates from the days when the college considered itself a town in its own right. Comprised primarily of clean, classical, and simple buildings by turn-of-the-century architects like Jens Frederick Larson and Charles Alonzo Rich, Dartmouth’s campus also boasts impressive modern buildings by Gwathmey Siegel; Robert A.M; Stern, KieranTimberlake Associates; and Venturi, Scott Brown and Associates. This extensively illustrated guide explores how these beautiful and historical buildings have helped to shape the Dartmouth identity. Author Scott Meacham explains the historically productive tension between the ideals of college and university and how it affects the scale and character of the campus, the ninth oldest in the U.S.
