Excerpt from Brown Alumni Monthly, Vol. 52: June, 1952 There was much, then, that was jubilant about the Dedi cation. Claude Branch, who had headed the National Cam paign for the Housing and Development Fund which made all this possible, called it one of the happiest days in Brown's history of 188 years. Never before has she witnessed, he said, the completion of a building project comparable with that completed by the Quadrangle which we are dedicating. Brown celebrates today something more than the erection Of bricks and mortar, for these buildings commemorate the loyalty of her family and friends. Branch presented to Presi dent Wriston a scroll which was A Token of Giving, for preservation in the Archives. It symbolized all the gifts and labors which had made the building program possible. (a replica of the scroll appears on the back cover Of this issue.) Branch's regret was that Col. Buxton could not have lived to be with his Class on its 5oth reunion and with us on the platform today, for under his leadership the campaign was started and carried on until over was raised.
