New Book Chronicles the History and Architecture of Pomona's Arches-and-Ivy Campus

Three years in the making, Pomona College: Reflections on a Campus offers readers a mix of thoughtful essays, artful photography and fascinating historical background. This new, 192-page book by Marjorie Harth, director emerita of the Pomona College Museum of Art,  covers the campus as place, from the 1887 founding to today.

With 169 color and 59 black and white images -- including archival photos and new images by photographer Henry Cabala -- and essays by noted authors Ron Fleming '63 and Verlyn Klinkenborg '74 and Professor of Art George Gorse, the book chronicles the campus' transformation from a patch of desert scrub to a college in a garden.

Sure to stir memories, the book tells the story of Pomona's elegant buildings and idyllic green spaces, from Marston Quadrangle to Mabel Shaw Bridges Hall of Music. Pomona College: Reflections on a Campus is available for purchase online from the Pomona College Coop Store.
