Magill Wing cases, Level 2
Over the last nearly 200 years, Haverford students, staff, and faculty have been on the move. In the early days of the College, the railroads and their various alignments were an integral part of daily life for all members of the community. As the iron roads declined, the car took off as the preferred way for people to get around, and with it came large-scale changes to the campus to accommodate the space needed for parking.

Paul Bell Moses (1929–1966) was an art historian and critic whose remarkable life was defined by barriers overcome. Moses grew up in Ardmore, majored in foreign languages at Haverford, and graduated magna cum laude. As one of the first Black students to attend Haverford College, Moses encountered significant racism. However, the College’s relationship with the Barnes Foundation nourished his passions for art history and art making, and he went on to become a significan art historian.
