Sesquicentennial celebration

History of Iowa State: Campus Buildings

Sponsored by the University Archives, Iowa State University Library

Copyright 2006

 

In 1980, H. Summerfield Day, the former University Architect (1966-1975) and Planning Coordinator (1975-1980) competed the history of Iowa State University's buildings and grounds.  This massive undertaking took him and his assistants twelve years to complete. The book contains information on virtually every building or structure that had been built on the Iowa State University campus prior to 1979. 

The contents list below provides links to the PDF copies of the book. Due to the size of the files, it may take a long time to download or view the documents.
