An Update on the Plaque from Iran

August 27, 2009
By Chris Richter

A few of our readers here and on our Facebook page asked us about the whereabouts of a plaque that was in our Photo of the Day last Thursday. It was given to the university by an Iranian alumnus in 1966. We were able to track it down to the lobby of Primrose Hall, one of the oldest buildings on campus and, today, home to the university’s real estate office. One of our interns snapped this photo while she was on Main Campus yesterday. Click on it, and you can see the plaque in great detail. If anyone knows Persian, let us know what the inscription says.

    In Persian, it says exactly what it says in English below it. Ravi Javid, Tehran, Iran 1953-57.

    Thanks, Ray and Milad. I knew someone would come through with a translation!

    Sorry, I meant, Rofi Javid, not not Ravi
