One Sargent Painting in Place

One of the memorial pictures painted by John Singer Sargent, honorary '16, was installed last Sunday above the main staircase in Widener on one side of the door to the Memorial Room and the other will be put in place on the opposite side next Sunday. The pictures are on War themes and are intended to be a memorial to the Harvard men who died in the War. One depicts the departure to war and the other the return. It is the former which is now in place but it will be covered by a veil until the other is also installed.
