0 - Brown: The History of an Idea **Signed Copies**
Ted Widmer signed copies during Commencement & Reunion Weekend. A great gift for grads and incoming Brunonians!

Author: Ted Widmer
Publisher: Thames & Hudson; Pub. Date: Sept. 2015; Subject: Brown University;

Founded in 1636, essentially as a refuge for outcasts from Massachusetts, Rhode Island emerged as perhaps the most open-minded of the colonies, emphasizing freedom of conscience and religious tolerance. Only such a place could produce a university as unorthodox as Brown and, in 1764, it did. The seventh-oldest college in the United States, Brown has followed its own course ever since it was founded as Rhode Island College. Building on its forward-thinking legacy, in 1969 the university adopted the student-proposed “New Curriculum,” which allowed students to structure their education with remarkable freedom, and continues as the Open Curriculum to this day. Over the last two and a half centuries, the university and its graduates have played a notable role in numerous defining moments in the American story, including the legacy of slavery (one of the Brown brothers was a leading abolitionist, the other an “ardent defender and slave trader”), the Industrial Revolution, and education reform. Although there are plenty of prominent alumni mentioned—among them Horace Mann, John D. Rockefeller Jr., Richard Holbrooke, Janet Yellen, and Edwidge Danticat—Widmer’s is a more ambitious account that weaves its threads into a variegated history of how a university can both mirror and spur the wider culture around it.

Ted Widmer served as the Assistant to the President for Special Projects at Brown University and the Beatrice and Julio Mario Santo Domingo Director and Librarian of the John Carter Brown Library. From 2012 to 2013, he also served as a senior adviser to Secretary of State Clinton. He has written or edited many works of history, including Ark of the Liberties and American Speeches (Library of America).

And their B-R-O-double-U-N

2018 Brown University Book Award - Alumni Sponsored
The Brown University Book Award is awarded to an outstanding high school or preparatory school junior who best combines academic excellence with clarity in written and spoken expression.

This year (2017-2018), the Brown University Book Award is It's All Relative: Adventures Up and Down the World's Family Tree by A. J. Jacobs '90. New York Times bestselling author of The Know-It-All and The Year of Living Biblically, A.J. Jacobs undergoes a heartfelt, hilarious quest to understand what constitutes family—where it begins and how far it goes—and attempts to untangle the true meaning of the “Family of Humankind.”

“In his latest adventure book, author and experimentalist A.J. Jacobs enthusiastically shares in the human quest for self-knowledge that drives so many of us around the world to search for – and find – our roots. The astonishing discoveries he makes not only reveal the compelling possibilities of genealogical and genetic research; they remind us of the common bonds that unite us as a single global family. As Jacobs’s (however distant) cousin, I admit I may be biased in singing his praises, but as It’s All Relative proves, who isn’t?”—Henry Louis Gates, Jr.

“Whimsical but also full of solid journalism and eye-opening revelations about the history of humanity, the book is a real treat.”Booklist, Starred Review

The Brown University Book Award is one price, $35.95, which includes shipping and handling.

Brown University: The Campus Guide
Exclusive publisher pricing for Brown University - $24.99

An Architectural Tour by Raymond P. Rhinehart '62
Publisher: Princeton Architectural Press; Pub. Date: October 2013; Subject: Brown University Architecture

"Founded in 1764 as the College of Rhode Island in the town of Warren, Brown University was the seventh in a series of Colonial higher learning institutions that now comprise the Ivy League. The university moved to its current spot overlooking Providence on College Hill in 1770 and was renamed in 1804 in recognition of a $5,000 gift from prominent businessman and alum Nicholas Brown. Today the Brown campus, consisting of 235 buildings on 143 acres is a tapestry of American architectural styles from pre-Colonial to modern. In Brown University, the newest volume in our acclaimed Campus Guide series, Class of '62 alumnus Raymond P. Rhinehart takes readers on nine architectural walks to more than one hundred campus landmarks—from the red-bricked University Hall (1770) to the new state-of-the-art Warren Alpert Medical School (2001). With students, alumni, and visitors in mind, the guide showcases the role that Brown has played in the history of campus architecture and the developing urban fabric of Providence."

--The only detailed architectural history of the campus
--Includes the work of esteemed modern architects such as Philip Johnson alongside Colonial Revival and Beaux-Arts legends Stone, Carpenter and Willson; Perry, Shaw and Hepburn; and McKim, Mead and White
--Beautifully photographed with archival material and an illustrated three-dimensional watercolor map
