UMD in 1964
The tabletop display located near the staircase on the library's first floor features a look back in history. What did UMD look like 50 years ago? What is now Montague Hall was under construction as a classroom building for the Home Economics Department, the Kirby Lounge was a gathering place, and the walk to campus in the snow was arduous.
This display includes an aerial view of the campus and a map to point out the existing buildings in 1964, along with an architect's drawing of the Home Economics Building. Materials are from Martin Library Archives and Special Collections.
