The J. Reuben Clark Law School bridge

Early this week the university closed campus drive and yesterday they knocked down the bridge connecting the law school with the rest of campus. This is all part of the campus unification project and soon a lovely pedestrian plaza will connect the law school with the rest of campus. The law school bridge has been part of campus for nearly forty years and the law school building will seem significantly different without the bridge connecting it to campus. Enjoy these historic images from the University Archives.

These images come from the Brigham Young University photographs of campus buildings, 1882-1985 (UA 827) which can be accessed here and the Edwin Butterworth collection for the Brigham Young University centennial celebration (UA P 2) which can be accessed here.

If you have any questions about these collections or about materials available for studying the history of the law school, please contact the University Archivist at (801) 422-5821 or gordon_daines@byu.edu.
