Mystery Monday: big date

Do you ever wish Yale’s founders had gotten their act together just two years sooner? 1699 sounds so much older than 1701. Anyway, can you tell us where we spotted this carved riff on the university seal?

    I speculate Pauli Murray - looks new but not I believe at Franklin. Fully agree on 1699 those founders should have skipped their 2 gap years.

    <> Woodbridge Hall's south facade on Wall St. The north facade has a corresponding panel with the building's date of 1901. 1901 Howells & Stokes. Wall St. 105.

    George Huthsteiner is correct!
