A sketch of the proposed 75-acre campus on the banks of the Merrimack River in Lawrence, Massachusetts. The Lawrence move the 1980s was one step in Emerson’s plan to expand into a university. Though the move was largely supported by the cities of Lawrence and Boston, the college gave up on the plan as the costs of construction grew every higher and the value of Emerson’s Boston real estate fell. Previous attempts to relocate Emerson to Bedford and Lexington in 1985 were unsuccessful. Info sources: Harvard Crimson (2/14/1987); New York Times (2/5/1987).
