Harvard – Dexter Gate

This was a 2007 birthday gift from my wife. It’s from one of my favorite architectural model makers Timothy Richards.

Dexter Gate is a familiar landmark to all Harvard graduates. On the face of its lintel is carved “enter to grow in wisdom” and on the reverse, “depart to serve mankind”. Harvard commissioned this bookend to commemorate the centenary of this landmark. Harvard University was established in 1636 and is one of America’s earliest educational institutions after being set up by the General Court of the Massachusetts Bay Colony.
