Arrangement of the Collection
The images are arranged in what is believed to be chronological order based upon what date the model or plan depicted in the image was intended to represent. Thus, note that many of the images do not represent the campus "as built" since the campus plan evolved over the course of 4 decades that the plans seem to represent. Note also that the date of the images (e.g., the date a photograph was taken of a model) does not likely represent the date depicted in the model. For the most part, the collection does not have dates associated with it -- either when the model/plan was created, or what date it is meant to represent.
