Fall colors, Bowdoin College, Maine, October 2015

We got to Maine when Fall/Autumn colors were at their very best. Some of the most attractive colors were on the campus of Bowdoin College, a liberal arts campus in Brunswick, Maine. The college was founded in 1794 and many buildings date from the 19th century. 

One of the alumni of the college is poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1825) that I mentioned in a post on Grand Pre for his poem Evangeline. 

The gym. An alumnus of the college is Admiral Peary, of Arctic fame. Note the polar bear statue in front of the gym. 

The art gallery had a great exhibition on the influence of night in fine art. The galleries are largely underground.
