Before the 1962 groundbreaking for the Fuller Center, and before Hartt moved from its modest home on Broad Street to the University of Hartford campus in 1963, a great deal of planning was done. I recently came across this brochure published in 1957, which was the year the three founding members of the University of Hartford came together.
As you can see, the eventual (and current) design of the Fuller Center is actually quite different from the conceptual layout/design even though the main components remained - the large building with the classrooms, the large theater (now, Millard Auditorium), and the small theater (now, Berkman Auditorium).
Enjoy! If anyone has other photos, posters, etc. from this exciting period in Hartt's history, we would love to see them. Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have anything you wish to share.
