This is a collection of items pertaining to the buildings on campus and their
history. Also included are files on campus grounds and landmarks (e.g. Risman
Plaza). The files include dedication booklets, correspondence, brochures, news
clippings and building plans from the Office of Campus Planning (1969) that
have been gathered from the vertical files in Special Collections and Archives
and processed as a collection. A separate file for campus development and general
buildings and grounds information is included at the end of Box 2. A few oversized
files are located in Box 3. Items are arranged alphabetically by the name of
the building or campus landmark.
Materials will be added to this collection on an ongoing basis.
Philip Shriver's, Years of Youth published in 1960 and William D.
Hildebrand's A Book of Memories also include information about Kent
State University buildings. Copies of these books are cataloged in KentLINK.
For building photographs, see the separate inventory for Kent
State University Buildings photographs.
