The Meliora Challenge
Statue of Industry in Rush Rhees Library

This statue which stands at the top of the Grand Staircase in Rush Rhees Library, was designed by Phillip Merz (who also designed much of the River Campus). The statue was carved at the studio of A. 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. She holds an oil lamp in her hand which according to some was the second choice. The first design apparently showed her holding a Kodak camera. This was deemed inappropriate, although Mr. Eastman

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
CONTRIBUTORS TO ITS GROWTH

THE WINDOW AT THE WEST END OF THIS ROOM
IS A MEMORIAL TO THE DAUGHTER OF MR BROWN

IT IS THE WORK OF MARTIN TRAVERS OF LONDON ENGLAND

-The Meredith Brown Skelton (1899-1925) Memorial Window
This lovely painted window by Martin Travers is located in an alcove opposite the entrance door to the room. The window was designed to be a decorative landscape symbolic of life in and beyond the University.

-Inscription above the fireplace:
IN SECUNDIS VOLUPTAS IN ADVERSIS PERFUGIUM
In English: In success a joy In adversity a shelter
This was the motto on the bookplate of Charles A. Brown.

-Portrait of Roger Friedlander above the fireplace:
Trustee Roger Friedlander, Class of 1956, and his wife Carolyn generously funded the refurbishment of the Welles Brown Room and the Lobby in 1999 in anticipation of the University’s Sesquicentennial. This powerful portrait was painted by artist Thomas Insalaco.
