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
CONTRIBUTORS TO ITS GROWTH

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
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.
