Relief images of John Lathrop and James Rollins anchor the north entrance to the MU campus. As historical sculptures, the plaques memorialize Lathrop, the university’s first president, and Rollins, considered the “father” of the institution. The “David R. Francis Memorial,” another bronze by Zolnay, is located on the Francis Quadrangle near Jesse Hall.
