The Yale Law School Lillian Goldman Law Library has (re)acquired two historic 18th-century books, bringing them home to the Law School 145 years after being sold as duplicates. . One book bears the signature of Law School founder Seth P. Staples, and both volumes contain inscriptions from Simeon E. Baldwin, professor at the Law School for 50 years. Taken together, the books help tell the story of the early history of the Law School, as well as the history of law in 18th-century Connecticut. .

Davenport College, one of fourteen #Yale residential colleges. . The residential college housing system is at the heart of the Yale experience. Before arriving as a first-year each student is randomly assigned to one of fourteen residential colleges, giving Yalies a built-in community from the moment they arrive. #DavenportCollege
Students at the Yale School of Architecture have been breaking ground — literally — for decades while building structures they designed during the summer after their first year. Students participating in this year’s Jim Vlock First Year Building Project also broke ground in another way — creating one of the first structures in the nation built with cross-laminated timber (CLT) panels, an innovative and sustainable wood product. . Founded in 1967 by Charles Moore as the first academic design-build program in the country, the Yale Building Project created community centers and campgrounds in Appalachia and New England in its early years. Since 1989, the project has created homes for over 50 New Haven families. . Working in partnership with Columbus House, a New Haven-based homelessness services provider, this year’s students designed and built a two-unit home in New Haven’s Hill neighborhood. This home, clad in shingles, makes extensive use of CLT panels for structural and insulated vertical and horizontal surfaces. The panels were trimmed offsite and then craned in, continuing experiments in prefabrication that began in last year’s project. . #Yale (Photo credit: Zelig Fok and Nicole Doan) @yalearchitecture #architecture #sustainabilty #sustainablewood #NHV #NewHaven
George H.W. Bush ’48, 41st president of the United States, died on Nov. 30. A World War II aviator who came to Yale on the G.I. Bill, he was preceded in death by his wife of 73 years, Barbara. . “Yale has lost a loyal friend,” said President Peter Salovey. “Throughout his lifetime, President Bush exemplified the values of service and leadership we seek to foster at Yale. A decorated veteran, he spent three years as a naval aviator flying combat missions over the Pacific before entering Yale. Once here, he distinguished himself as a student and an athlete.” . “One of the great first basemen and baseball captains in Yale’s history, President Bush remained an avid ‘Bulldog,’ a fan of Yale athletics, and an especially ardent champion of our student-veterans. He set an example of dignified service to this country that will continue to inspire future generations at Yale,” Salovey said. . Photo: George H.W.
