The Vassar College campus guide takes visitors on a series of chronologically arranged walks as the authors tell how Vassar developed as a physical expression of the changing nature of women's education. Matthew Vassar founded Vassar in 1865 by as a pioneer institution in women's education. Its site in the Hudson Valley was chosen for its seclusion and privacy. The campus grew from a single, multi-purpose academic-residential building to a complex and sophisticated environment that encouraged independence and diversity in its students. Major buildings by James Renwick, McKim, Mead & White; York & Sawyer, Eero Saarinen, Marcel Breuer, and Cesar Pelli grace the campus.
