Campus Hill Location Dial

The campus has gone through many changes in 80 plus years. The original campus layout had its center where the upper athletic fields are today (where Commencement will take place on May 21st.) In 1926 the Pacific Coast Sales Force for the Babson Statistical Organization (Harrison C. Hall, Harry L. Grubbs, and Anna H. Dart) contributed $300 toward the Location Dial which would mark the center of the campus. George F. Marlowe, the architect who designed most of our early buildings, designed the dial which was built by contractor Edward Pomeroy. The outer ring has compass directions and in small metal letters local landmarks of the day are identified.
