Synopsis

UMass Amherst is the largest public university in New England with more than 24,000 students and 1,100 faculty. As one of the oldest public universities, and the largest in the American North East, the University of Massachusetts Amherst has a rich and involved history. Initially chartered as the Massachusetts Agricultural College, the school has grown from fifty farms to roughly 24,000 students. The university campus has grownfrom a few barns on the Berkshire foothills to nearly 1,500 acres. At times described as the "ugly" Massachusetts school, University Massachusetts Amherst, the next volume in the Campus Guide series, proved anything but. Five carefully considered tours are organized into Walks by UMass alums and professors Marla Miller and Max Page to put the architectural history of the campus into context while beautifully shot photography illustrates a campus overflowing with midcentury modern gems to cherish including the Fine Arts Centre (Roch, Dinkeloo and Associates), Herter Hall (Coletti Brothers), and the monolithic W.E.B. DuBois Library (Edward Durell Stone).
