Exploring Boston’s historic maps
Saturday, June 23, 2012 from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM (EDT)
Join us as Alex Krieger FAIA, professor at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design, discusses Boston’s development and morphology through various illustrated historic maps in the new Leventhal Map Center. This space opened last year with the mission of using the Boston Public Library’s permanent collection of 200,000 maps and 5,000 atlases, and a select group of rare maps collected by Norman B. Leventhal.
