Throwback Thursday: old Old Campus

This cover of our magazine is almost 100 years old, but the scene it depicts is much older: a photo of the Old Campus from 1864 that would have looked familiar to the oldest alumni. Yale's Old Brick Row comprised seven buildings that functioned as classrooms, residence halls, library, and chapel; Connecticut Hall is the only one still standing. The view in the photo is looking south toward Chapel Street from near the present location of Durfee Hall.
