Mystery Monday: remembrance of things past

Where on campus can you find this memorial to a bygone building? This one's a cinch if you were at Yale before 1931.

    I do not quite know where at JE this is, but I believe that this memorial honors one of two distinguished and exuberant laboratory buildings that trained turn of the 20th century STEM students (Sloan chemistry and Kent physics ). They stood side by side in the complicated site where James Gamble Rogers razed them to build Jonathan Edwards in 1932, his most interesting, quirky and homey of colleges. JE’s character still reflects the footprint of these two labs.

    That's right! It's above an entryway on the north side of the JE courtyard.

    Do you know if there is a companion memorial also at JE for the Kent Physics lab?

    There is! On the east wall of the courtyard.
