This bowl was handcrafted from a trimming of a Honey Locust tree (Gleditsia triacanthos) that grew in the Tercentenary Theatre at the heart of Harvard College. In FDR's tercentenary celebration address he said, "I am here as a son of Harvard who gladly returns to this spot where men have sought truth for three hundred years. The roots of Harvard are deep in the past." Every year the Tercentenary Theatre is transformed into the site of Harvard College commencement. In order to assure the health of the Theatre's Canopy, this trimming was removed in January 2015.
This bowl was made by Cambridge Bowl Company.
