Saarinen exhibit explores the building of a modern campus at Drake University

Drake University has the distinguished honor of having a campus plan and nine buildings designed by two of the greatest architects of the 20th century. This fall, a comprehensive exhibition sheds light on how those designs by Eliel Saarinen and his son, Eero, reflected Drake's determination to be a modern university that would help propel America into post-World War II leadership.



Cary Fowler, executive director of Global Crop Diversity Trust, planted a seed about the importance of preserving the world's crops with nearly 30 Drake law students during his recent Drake visit.
