The Memorial Union and Stadium : a campaign of opportunity, not importunity
Metadata[+] Show full item record
"In grateful memory of the heroic company of Missouri alumni and former students and their companions from the State of Missouri, who during the Great War, just past, paid the full measure of devotion that we, who survive them, might have life and have it more abundantly. They saved for us the priceless heritage of our institutions of individual liberty and national freedom. There were worth saving; they could be saved only by untold sacrifice-the price has been paid. Let us then with grateful homage deny ourselves-even to some degree of sacrifice-that we may rear to them monuments fitting as recognitions of their glory and as visible evidences of the wealth of our affection. Let them be such structures as the Memorial Union, with its magnificent Tower, and a Stadium-memorials that shall keep alive in the living the memory of the heroic dead." -- Page following the cover.
