    1883: Crew, Cricket and Cross-Country

    This carving by John Gregory Wiggins commemorates the St. Paul's School Form of 1883. The top of the plaque shows one of the six-oared shells that were raced on Long Pond that year. The "Veritas" shield celebrates a cricket victory over Harvard. The hound and hare represent a vigorous twelve mile cross-country race around the school grounds run by most of the students - the winner receiving bragging rights for a whole year! #ohrstromlibrary #ohrstromlibrarydigitalarchives #spshistory #iamsps #formof1883 #formplaque #johngregorywiggins #carving #woodcarving #tbt #throwback #throwbackthursday #harvard @harvard #cricket #hare #hound #race
