Monumental Alumni

From Minnesota Alumni Magazine Spring 2016


A new section of the Scholars Walk pays tribute to the lives and work of more than 20 University of Minnesota alumni. Their monuments, pictured here, join those that celebrate the University’s Nobel Laureates, Pulitzer Prize winners, national academies inductees and others of exceptional intellectual achievement. The Scholars Walk stretches from Walnut Street near the McNamara Alumni Center west to Appleby Hall and Pleasant Street.

Among the honored alumni are composer Libby Larsen; photographer Judy Olausen; architect Sarah Susanka; Justice Alan Page; astronaut Donald “Deke” Slayton; and surgeon Norman Shumway. Plan to visit it next time you’re on campus.
