The Meliora Challenge
The Welles Brown Room

The Welles Brown Room has always beckoned readers into its plush interior. It was envisioned as a browsing library in which students would find themselves irresistibly drawn to good books. In addition to providing the comfortable club like atmosphere for study, the Welles Brown Room is a favorite for visiting speakers, receptions and social events.

It contains the following notable features:
Inscription above the door:
THIS ROOM HAS BEEN EQUIPPED FOR
THE USE AND ENJOYMENT OF STUDENTS OF THE
UNIVERSITY OF ROCHESTER BY THE GENEROSITY
OF FRANCIS R WELLES OF THE CLASS OF 1875
AND CHARLES A BROWN OF THE CLASS OF 1879
BOTH TRUSTEES OF THE UNIVERSITY AND LIBERAL

THE WINDOW AT THE WEST END OF THIS ROOM
IS A MEMORIAL TO THE DAUGHTER OF MR BROWN
ERECTED BY HER HUSBAND RALPH F SKELTON

A. Ardolino, who carved the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC. (Ardolino also carved the figures in the pediment on the façade of the Library.) The Statue of Industry is not based on any figure of classical mythology, but has a cog near her left heel and a wheel.
