GRAPHIC:  About AlumniArchitectural Details


Although it’s now a popular place to meet and greet between classes, until the 1960s convention dictated that only lettermen and their dates could use the circular C-bench, located just east of Cobb Hall’s main entrance. A Class of 1903 gift, the 22’-diameter bench opens on a keystone recovered from a Douglas Hall turret tower (part of the old University). Other class gifts adorning Cobb and its environs include bulletin boards from 1906, ornamental lamps from 1907, and a clock (now stopped at 5:39) from 1924.—A.L.M.
