Success at Rutgers

The Bloustein School is pleased to announce a display of 18 historic maps of New Jersey and other U.S. cities in the lobby of the Civic Square Building. These pieces were donated to the Bloustein School; two pieces valued at $3,600 were donated by Dr. Mladen “Mike” Solar and sixteen pieces, valued at $40,600, were donated by Dr. Orrin Lippoff.
Mr. W. Graham Arader, founder and owner of Arader Galleries in New York City, facilitated the donation of the maps.
“The set of maps represents a variety of cartographic styles produced during the 19th century, and presents a fine viewing opportunity for our many students, faculty, and visiting scholars interested in city urban planning and the art of map making,” said Bloustein School Dean James W. Hughes.
The antiquarian maps are already “having a positive impact on the learning environment of the school,” Dean Hughes noted. Students have noted that the maps add a museum effect to the school while adding buzz and visual interest to the many receptions held in the school’s lobby. Additionally, a student commented, “This is what we do in planning and public policy—transportation planning, greening of cities, cities designed to promote healthy outcomes. Also, we love train stations!”
The maps are displayed in the main lobby of the Civic Square Building, 33 Livingston Avenue, New Brunswick, NJ. The lobby is open to the public during normal business operating hours, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m.

Hi, George.

The Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy is very excited to announce that the maps donated by Drs. Lippoff and Solar are now on display. Could you please share the attached draft announcement with Dr. Solar, Dr. Lippoff, and Graham for their review and approval? If they consent, it will appear on the School’s website and in their next alumni newsletter. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.
