I returned and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favor to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all. Ecclesiastes 9: 11
I shot this diptych of the sundial and the sign at the University of River Falls Campus...
On my next posting I will show you the entire sundial on the campus building
from top to bottom...We took my sister there last evening who was visiting us and you'll see a picture of us standing in front, for scale to appreciate the size of the sundial.
Here is what the sign says about the history of the Sundial:
The sundial is placed in recognition of Dr. Swenson's contributions to the University as Dean of the college of Arts and Sciences from 1969 to 1988.and as a faculty member in chemistry from 1955 to 1993. The sundial represents fields of interest to him: science through its design and accuracy, art through the aesthetic presentation of information and multiculturalism and history through their relationship to time found in many cultures and throughout the history of civilization. The sundial accurate to within one minute on the hour, at the time of construction in 1995 is the largest most accurate vertical face sundial in the world..
