Statue of George Washington Carver by Christian Petersen, sculptor-in-residence in the late 1940's. Originally a plaster sculpture, it was given to the University and placed in Carver Hall at the dedication of the hall in 1970 by the Class of 1968. Christian Petersen came over and stood by August Bang's side. "When I look upon Carver as you have him here, " Bang said, "The words which were written at his death come to my mind - 'He wandered with God'." "That is just what I have tried to say, " answered the artist, and a beautiful smile lighted his face. In 1998, with gift funds, the statue was cast in bronze as it was originally meant to be, and installed in the courtyard between Carver and Beardshear Halls.
