College Garage

The College Garage was built in 1929, designed by James Kellum Smith, with the total cost covered by George D. Pratt. This donation led President King to describe Pratt as having "...imaginative generosity. I knew of no one else who would give a garage" (King, 186). The Garage houses College vehicles, objects of one of the first Amherstiana-related projects I undertook, a Catalog of the Vehicles of Amherst College (visit the "catalog" to hear how the story ended).
