The Rush Rhees Library building of the University of Rochester in New York has a number of memorable inscriptions. Those on the exterior of the Library were authored by John Rothwell Slater, Professor of English from 1905 to 1942. To the right of the West Entrance (Eastman Quadrangle) of the library is this inscription: HERE IS THE HISTORY OF MANS HUNGER FOR TRUTH GOODNESS AND BEAUTY LEADING HIM SLOWLY ON THROUGH FLESH TO SPIRIT FROM BONDAGE TO FREEDOM FROM WAR TO PEACE.
