Aerial view of UW, circa 1950s This aerial view of campus shows how the expansion of the University of Wyoming was inherently connected to the growth and development of the city of Laramie during the first fifty years of the University’s existence. The university experienced much growth during the nearly twenty-year administration of President George “Duke” Humphrey who undertook a grand campus building project. This twenty million dollar building plan included most of the buildings that define the campus today, including the Agriculture Building, Ross Hall, the Education Building, the Anthropology Building, and the William Robertson Coe Library.
