The following description was written by John Gregory Wiggins in the June 6, 1929 edition of the Horae Scholasticae:
At the beginning of this School year was formed the Scientific Association, which important event seems to warrant a shield all to itself. Four medals have been struck off and placed in the corners of the quatrefoil, representing great moments in science. First: Dr. Franklin holding a lightning rod; 2d, Christopher Columbus showing just how to break an egg; 3rd, Leonardo da Vinci, having just completed the invention of the wheelbarrow; and Archimedes, of Syracuse, in the act of discovering the laws of specific gravity in his bathtub, and just about to shout “Εύρηκα!”
