'0ld Memorials
Recall Classes
Of Past Years:
Civil War Cenotaph, Eliii
Of '69 Removed From
If the ghosts of the Class of '55
should return from the Elysian
Fields to visit their old haunts once
more, they would find several thingsj
to recall the "good old days"; theI
President's t.esidence which was
uilt in 1841, Mason Hall, and South
Wing. They wouldn't remember Uni-
versity Hall, because, although the
two wings were built in '42 and '49,
the central part of the building was
not finished until '72.
They would have little difficulty'
hoto in recognizing the old cenotaph
den, erected in honor of Michigan men
ince who lost their lives in the Civil War,
ylla, even if it has been moved from its
She original place by the old medical
at- building on the east side of campus.
-. The broken shaft, which appeared
in the early picture of Michigan
painted in 1865 by J. F. Cropsey, isj
now located on the east side of the
Act library.

The cenotaph rests on a square
gin base which has a carved stone tablet

trays to know that the Tappan Oak, their
class memorial, is still standing, to-t

trees they planted. There is a stone

the General Library, with the follow-
ing inscription in it which they would
remember: "In honor of Dr. Henry
P. Tappan, then president of the U.
of M., the Class of 1858 named this
tree 'The Tappan Oak'; placed this
boulder at its foot and planted 48
trees in circles around the oak, each
meinber of the class planting a tree."
