An article in the March 1, 1932, edition of The Lamron included the initial location of the boulder on campus ~
"Near the main entrance to the administration building reposes a large rock upon which is carved the numerals of the class of 1905. This rock which was found in a nearby field, was declared by Dr. Condon, Oregon's foremost geologist, to be a relic of the glacial period which took place more than three million years ago."
The rock, which is tucked into
The erratic granite boulder
the northeast corner of the garden, is easy to overlook.
Location on campus:
