From the Preface- "In selecting the subjects for my woodcuts of The University, it was my desire to show things that we really see without looking for them: early morning sunlight streaming across the lawn, falling on rounded white columns; the brilliant midday sun striking vine-covered buildings; evening shadows, spring rain, snow on the lawn, a thundershower over Monroe Hill, the Chapel in the moonlight, boxwood gardens, serpentine walls, students leisurely changing classes."
