Palmer Hall Dedication

Palmer Hall was dedicated on February 23, 1904. The ceremonies began in Perkins Hall where David Jordan, president of Stanford University, gave the address after which General Palmer was awarded an honorary doctor of laws degree. The ensuing academic procession (shown below) included Governor Peabody of Colorado and fifty college and university presidents. The procession ended on the steps of Palmer Hall where President Slocum made the requisite dedicatory statement.
