about this item

Architects describe and analyze the 25 gates to Harvard Yard that give entry to the renowned university, showing how they trace the history of Harvard from a tiny all-male training ground for Puritan ministers to a sprawling institution that draws students from every strata of society. The stories include the architects, patrons, and generous classes of alumni that transformed the perimeter and so the university's architectural character. Moving clockwise from the northwest to the southwest, they consider such gates as the Class of 1874 Gate: its glory was fleeting, Bradstreet Gate: a nod to women at Harvard, Dudley Memorial Gate (replaced by Lamont Library Gates: the ghost that still haunts, and The McKean (Porcellian Club) Gate: inspired by a pig roast.
