Excerpt from Brown Alumni Monthly, Vol. 52: June, 1952
On June 1 there was dedication in detail as well as the comprehensive thought of the Quadrangle as a whole. The conspicuous exception to the act of dedication was Patriots Court, which was merely named at this time. This north south court, 'in memory of the men of Brown who have died in the service of their country since will be the object of special dedication on Nov. 15, as the principal feature of the Fall Homecoming. The fraternity houses are in process of independent dedication by the various chapters: some such ceremonies have already been held, while others are planned for the next term.
In the ritual of dedication, each building, court, and gate way was identified with the individual for whom it was named. As President Wriston made the pronouncement, We dedicate an off stage voice made response citing the individual's association with the University, telling of other achievement in the world beyond, and closing with a felici tous phrase of summary. It was a dramatic device, sim ple and impressive, gratefully heard by the great throng.
Chairman homer: Our Quadrangle is a symbol of faith. Governor Roberts, Chancellor and Mrs. Sharpe may also be seen.
