description:

A note from Wells that accompanies this image reads, in part: "The school bell denotes the school master. This bell was used by my father as a country school teacher for many years.

The Tibetan Monk's begging bowl symbolizes that a University President must ask for financial support for his Institution.

The globe denotes the worldwide concern of the University. All the world is our parish."
