Excerpt from Exercises at the Unveiling of a Memorial Tablet to Arnold Guyot, Ph.D., LL. D. In Marquand Chapel, Princeton, N. J: Tuesday, June 10th, 1890

Several years ago a circular letter was sent to the pupils of Dr. Guyot requesting their cooperation in placing a tablet to his memory in Marquand Chapel. At the same time it seemed appropriate that his older pupils across the ocean in Neuchatel should be given an opportunity to join in the proposed plan. A letter was written to Mr. Charles Faure, Secretary of the Geo graphical Society of Geneva, and he was afterwards visited, with the view of securing an erratic boulder to form the basis of the tablet. Such a decided interest was taken in the matter that a law prohibiting the removal of these boulders was suspended and a large stone weighing some four or five tons was placed at our dis posal. This rock was transported from the vicinity of Neuchatel, the old home of Dr. Guyot, to New York. A portion weighing over half a ton was sawn from it, and imbedded in the Chapel wall. Upon this was placed a Roman tablet, resting on a palm branch, as will be seen in the plate.

A three-quarter bust of Dr. Guyot occupies the central portion of the tablet, and the inscription is to the right and left of the head.

The artistic execution of the tablet is the work of Mr. Olin L. Warner of New York City, who has given us an admirable likeness of Dr. Guyot.
