Memorial Library

Memorial Library contains 2000 historical volumes collected in the Beaux Arts and Grand Tour traditions between 1883 and 1940. These include the sketchbooks of Boston Architectural Club members, BAC Yearbooks (documenting the work of members, students, and teachers of the time), and architectural publications (mostly European) of the period. Memorial Library itself is the library of the original Boston Architectural Club. Dismantled and reassembled piece by piece in the current building, it provides a strong link to the school's history and is a visible reminder of the traditions which continue to inform the BAC's educational philosophies.
