For an important time in our youth, Yale was home.

the Old Campus at Yale in spring

For many alumni places or spaces on the Yale campus were special. Something that still speaks to them now. Perhaps it was a piece of architecture or public art, perhaps a ball field or the stands behind them, perhaps a restaurant booth or a chapel pew.

It’s been 50 years since we entered Yale. To commemorate this half-century, we, members of the Yale Class of 1970, are creating a photo-essay book based on personal remembrances of the physical campus. For the past year and a half, we have been gathering these recollections. This part of the project is now complete. Samples of classmates’ recollections have been uploaded to this website along with photographs of some of the places recollected.

As the project progresses, this website will evolve. For now, enjoy.
