Boston, Massachusetts Map of the Month

The “Map of the Month” on display in the Ball State University Libraries’ GIS Research and Map Collection (GRMC) is a map of Boston, Massachusetts, to commemorate the Boston Marathon on April 20. 

The map was illustrated by Barbara Spurll and published by Archar, Incorporated in 1977.  This pictorial map features famous people, landmarks, and fun facts about the city of Boston.  Click the map above to enlarge to view the John Kennedy birthplace, Fenway Park, and the Harvard and Yale rowing teams on the Charles River.

The map will be exhibited in the front windows of the GRMC on the second floor of Bracken Library through the end of April.  Maps from the GRMC circulate for two weeks or longer.

For more information about using maps for exhibits, please contact the GRMC at 765-285-1097.
