Padraic -

You might be interested to learn something I was recently told by a member of the class of '48. Those two plaques were given to the school by Narcissa Vanderlip's close friend and fellow suffragette, Eleanor Roosevelt, on the occasion of the opening and dedication of the Beechwood Theater!

According to the story, Narcissa invited Eleanor to speak at the event and dedicate the theater. Eleanor asked, "What should I donate" and Narcissa replied "Whatever you want" Eleanor presented the plaques.

How's that for provenance?
