HARVARD UNIVERSITY - Dexter Gate - 1890
(single doorway bookend)

Dexter Gate is a familiar landmark to all Harvard graduates. On the face of its lintel is carved enter to grow in wisdom and on the reverse, depart to serve mankind. Harvard commissioned this bookend to commemorate the centenary of this landmark. Harvard University was established in 1636 and is one of America's earliest educational institutions after being set up by the General Court of the Massachusetts Bay Colony.

In time it is hoped that other Ivy League and American universities may follow suit in commissioning their own models. The model was commissioned by Harvard and has been licensed to allow sales elsewhere.
