Form Plaque: 1891


This unattributed description, most likely written by John Gregory Wiggins, appeared in the Spring 1932 edition of the Alumni Horae:

The Horae of this year gives an account of the Behring Seal Dispute between Great Britain and the United States. So at the top of the shield we have an eagle and a lion rampant with a seal between. At the bottom of the panel we have indicated the corner stone of the new Lower School which was laid that year. Speed and accuracy were shown to a marked degree at this time in the track and field events, hence the discobolus and the fleet-footed stag. The Greek athlete also reminds us of the activities of the American School at Athens and the excavations in Rome at this period. A large buck also was seen very near the School during the Fall term.
