War Memorial

In May of 1943, the Amherst Board of Trustees voted to erect a war memorial at the end of the war, and President King, working with landscape architect Arthur Shurcliff and architect James Kellum Smith '15, decided on a War Memorial and
Memorial Field for athletic events. After raising money from alumni, the memorial was dedicated in June of 1946 (King, 274).
