University of Florida Campus, 1931-1953

As I mentioned in University of Florida Campus, 1906-1930, the school has done a good job of protecting its historic architecture. This, the last of two entries about the historic campus, includes the structures and park built from about 1931 until 1953. I stopped at the latter date because that is what UF considers its 100th anniversary.

For more historic UF photos, see the UF Then and Now project or the UF Digital Collections.
