Feb. 12, 1921: A bronze bust of Abraham Lincoln is put into place at the base of the Campanile’s south façade. Made by artist and sculptor Gutzon de la Mothe Borglum, who created the monumental presidents’ heads at Mount Rushmore, the bust was a gift to the university in 1909 from former student Eugene Meyer and a replica of a marble one that Meyer gave to the U.S. Capitol. Meyer became owner of the Washington Post and the father of Katherine Graham, who began leading the Post in the ‘60s.
