HAI Historian Garry Adelman Authors Then & Now Book
Garry E. Adelman of History Associates Incorporated (HAI) based in Rockville, Maryland, has authored The University of Maryland, College Park: Then & Now, the first in a series of planned photographic histories of colleges and universities.
Since the Maryland Agricultural College was chartered in 1856, the campus at College Park has changed dramatically, and yet much has stayed the same. By presenting dozens of old photographs from the collections of the University of Maryland Archives and comparing them with views recorded in 2002 from the same location, this book allows the reader to travel through time and compare the changing College Park campus with that of today. The University of Maryland, College Park: Then & Now includes a brief history of the institution, a map of the old and modern campuses, and a “challenge” for the reader to locate a campus view from 1916.
