Abstract

In 1908, architect Myron Hunt presented his “Pomona College Campus Plan” to the Board of Trustees and it was published in the Pomona College Magazine. Three key components of the Hunt quadrangle plan, based on Thomas Jefferson’s University of Virginia in Charlottesville of 1816-27, were built in 1914-15: Bridges Hall of Music, Lebus Court, and Rembrandt Hall. This talk is about the genesis of Myron Hunt’s ideas and his design for these three buildings to Music and Art in relation to the Jefferson national model and regional planning in celebration of their centennial.
