Yale: A Short History

Factual and Statistical Data

As a supplement to the annual Catalogue of the University,

graduate and professional schools; also the following special
publications (all available at the office of the Secretary): The
Residential Colleges at Yak University
(1977), Buildings of Yale
(1965), and Historical Register of Yale University (3 vols. 1937,
1957, 1968). Also visually attractive and factually informative
are a number of the publications of the Campaign for Yale, e.g.,
Prospectus of Yale (1975), The Essential Yale...in 6,500,000
(1976), and Look Here! (serially updated statistics).

(back cover)

And there shall linger other magic things, -
The fog that creeps in wanly from the sea,
The rotten harbor smell, the mystery
Of moonlight elms, the flash of pegeon wings,
The sunny Green, the old-world peace that clings
About the college yard where endlessly
The dead goup and down. These things shall be
Enchantment of our heart's rememberings.

Archibald MacLeish, from the Class poem, 1915
