Friday Morning Correction: It’s Granite.

I woke up this morning to a half dozen emails from alert readers who pointed out what I would have known if only I’d looked at this scan of the front page of the brochure, which was right next to the first photo I posted yesterday. It’s actually the same quarry that provided the granite for Lovett Hall (Thanks, Dr. Boles!), a fact which had escaped me entirely.

Yikes. I need a vacation.

    We all need a vacation. Good one Marty,
    At Melissa, maybe you were thinking of the green marble used on two of the buildings. I understand that it was from New England (Vermont, I think) and that Rices owned (maybe still does) the mine.

    Never heard of a marble mine. I usually think in terms of a quarry

    I do too, let’s just attribute it to the onset of a cold, and too many languages floating in my head. Of course technically a quarry is a kind of strip mine.
