Memorial Union Memorial Union: The Transcendent Tower

Figured in Stone: The Arcade Sculptures of Memorial Tower

Spreading the Word

Seated amongst oak branches, this young man has an open book in his lap. He peers to the angel to his right and ignores the book, which represents both the New Testament and the educational function of the university. This figure witnesses the angel announcing the end of the Great War and the names of Mizzou soldiers and sailors who died in the war.
