Renovating a Classic Campus

December 1999

Mies van der Rohe may, or may not, have said that “God is in the details,” but they make a big difference when you are undertaking a $1-billion renovation of a university. The current campaign is making “deferred maintenance” a thing of the past.


The New Nurses

In recent years, graduates of the School of Nursing have made careers as primary care providers and clinical specialists. Now, as the School celebrates its 75th anniversary and the fruition of its doctoral degree program, nursing students and faculty are building a body of research that will lead to better patient care.


The Best of all Possible Worlds
A collection of vintage globes made in Europe and America between 1699 and 1873 and given to Yale in 1980 by Jonathan Trumbull Lanman ’40, ’43MD, has gone on display for the first time in Sterling Library. The exhibit allows scholars to reenter a world before satellite photography and global positioning systems.
