** THIS EVENT IS CANCELLED. **
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 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.
