Dave Harrower came to Haverford in June 2012, and has primarily worked on project planning, coordination and implementation, especially for capital campaign projects and ADA upgrades.
He has a BA in History from Hobart College, and a Master of Architecture & Certificate in Historic Preservation from the University of Pennsylvania. He is a Registered Architect, and he brings considerable experience with Historic Preservation and Adaptive Reuse projects. He is a LEED-Accredited Professional, and was a founding member of the Delaware Valley Green Building Council.
His hobby is historical research, and he is compiling stories pertaining to the built elements of the Haverford College campus. He has also focused on "Camp William Penn," a Civil War training camp for United States Colored Troops located in Cheltenham Township, and is (slowly) working on a biography of David Bustill Bowser, a 19th-century, Philadelphia-based, African-American activist and artist who painted the inspiring regimental flags of the U.S.C.T. units.
