1953 campus plan

1953 Campus Plan by Shurcliff, Shurcliff and Merrill

The 1953 plan started to integrate the automobile into the campus by showing sites for new parking lots and roads. This plan shows North Pleasant Street closed to through traffic; Stockbridge Road and Thatcher Way serve as a through route to North Amherst. More than fifty years later, closing North Pleasant Street continues to be considered as a way to improve the campus.

1954 Enrollment: 4,000.
