Memorials Of Campus Classes

bers of the class of '41, who will be ton, D. C. is against the right wall
scattered to all corners of the globe-Angell Hall. This cast, enclosed with

with only the class memorial they will
have presented to the University as a
monument of their four years' stay on
Whatever this memorial may be,
whether bench, cannon, stone or tree,l
it will join its predecessors and be-}
come steeped in campus tradition.
One of the oldest of these is "The
Tappan Oak," west of the general
library. The class of 1858 placed it
there in honor of Dr. Henry P. Tap-
pan, then president of the University.
They placed an identifying boulder at
its foot and planted 48 trees in circles
around the oak, each member of the
class planting a tree.
Tomahawk Of Michigamua
The curious may wonder about the
-ircle of stone with a tomahawk in
the center under the oak. Michi-
gamua is responsible for having this
sunk, in connection with their annual
initiations held beneath the tree, and
it is comparatively recent.
Anyone who has a penchant for
reading Latin-at sight-will be par-
ticularly interested in the old broken
shaft, scientifically known as a ceno-
taph, which stands in the east side
of the library. This shaft is in mem-
ory of four professors who died in the
Civil War. On the square below the
shaft carved stone plates are em-
bedded in the sides, each of them tell-
ing how and when one of these four
died, and the story is all in the "dead
language." As early as 1865 the ceno-
taph was on campus, since it ap-
peared in an 1865 painting by J. F.
Cropsey which now is in the Clements
Elm Is Class Memorial
Another tree figures as a class me-
morial, the elm tree in front of Angell
Hall. When engineers were planning
to build the new hall, their surveys
disclosed that the elm, a memorial to
the class of 1869, was growing in the
:riddle of the space"intended for the
building. There was nothing to do
but move it, so in the spring of 1923
the class of '69 paid for the change,
great care being taken that the tree
would live. A square copper plate
may be found, after a little research,
in the exact spot where the elm stood.
It is in the floor of the Graduate
Office, and says, "More than half a
century ago here stood the class tree
of '69 growing to a mighty elm."
War Motivates Choice
The Spanish-American War was
the motivating power behind the
choice of a Spanish mortar by the
::lass of '99 as their memorial. It was
erected in honor of the Michigan
men who fought in the war and is
now on the south side of the library.
A mortar is a short cannon used for
firing shells at a high angle or for
hurling life-lines to vessels. This one
was brought back to America after
the war and formerly was at the foot
of the flagpole which used to be near

lumbus and the discovery of America.
Benches Are 'In Memoriam'
That circle of benches at the east
end of the diagonal are engineering
memorials of the classes of '13, '11
'09, '20, and '07, and are arranged
from the left as you enter in that
order. The Stump Speakers' Society
>f Sigma Rho Tau give speeches from
the cement tree stump in the middle
of the circle. This recent addition
gives a new purpose for the benches
-reserved seats for audiences at
these stump speeches.
Then there are the fountains. The
zement one on the diagonal in front'
of the library was given by the class
of 1911. The round bronze one at the
northwest end of the diagonal, while
not given by a class, was presented to
the University by an alumnus. It is
a gift of Francis M. Hamilton, '69,!
mayor of Ann Arbor from 1905-1907.!
These are the major memorials, bqtt
in a stroll around the campus, class
tones, benches and plaques of dif-
ferent societies and other smaller me-
mnorials may be discovered to com-
plete the list.
