Mystery Monday: strings attached

This stone carving predates the ascendancy of a bluegrass-playing Yale president last year. Anybody know where on campus you can find it? We’ll update this post with the answer tomorrow.

UPDATE: The banjo can be found on the north half of Berkeley College facing Cross Campus. Berkeley's ornament includes a lot of tributes to Yale extracurriculars—this is apparently a nod to the banjo and mandolin clubs that were popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.


The Yale Alumni Magazine is published by Yale Alumni Publications Inc., an alumni-based nonprofit that is not run by Yale University. Its content does not necessarily reflect the views of the university administration.
