Michigan State University: Entrance Marker – East Lansing MI

Description

“Created through the WPA/FAP programs and a gift from the Class of 1938, this limestone marker” at MSU’s Abbot Road entrance “welcomes visitors and students to the MSU campus, then known as Michigan State College. The classical column, reinterpreted in the Art Deco style of the 1930s, along with the man, horse and woman with a sheaf of wheat, recall MSU’s agricultural heritage.”
