    Elevations History Series: An Illustrated Introduction to the Early History of The University of Colorado at Boulder

    This event is presented by Albert A. Bartlett, Professor Emeritus of Physics. When the University first opened its doors in September of 1877, the University consisted of one building, Old Main, sitting alone atop a big hill to the south of Boulder. There has been a steady parade of buildings added in a variety of styles since then, which led President George Norlin to observe that the campus looked like a “third-rate farm.” President Norlin worked with the Philadelphia architect Charles Klauder to introduce the Tuscan architectural style that characterizes the Boulder campus today. The talk also introduces us to some of the prominent professors in the early history of the University.
