The early and mid-1960s saw a burst of bricks-and-mortar activity on the Charles River Campus. Most notable were construction of the George Sherman Union, the Law and Education Tower, and Mugar Memorial Library and the development of West Campus. The University had acquired Braves Field in 1953 and was now in a position to develop the land into a sports and housing complex. This 1962 photo shows construction on Claflin and Sleeper Halls and ground being cleared for Rich. Named for the three founders of BU, the residences house more than 1,600 students. In 1971 the Case Center joined the trio. Boston University Photo Services
