Castle Photographs, Middlesex University Collection

The Middlesex University Collection at Brandeis University documents a medical school founded by Dr. John Hall Smith in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in 1914. When the University closed in 1946, it was located in Waltham on the campus of what would become Brandeis University. This exhibit is a collection of digitized photographs, negatives and printed material focusing on "the Castle," a Middlesex University building designed and constructed from 1928 to 1940 under the auspices of President John Hall Smith. It still serves Brandeis University as one of the most popular dorms on campus.
