Details of Saturday's Gilman Rededication

A source has provided some details of the Gilman Hall rededication on Saturday night.
  • Over 400 guests dined on beet salad spiced with pecans, pears, and Fourme D'Ambert; sun-dried tomato and olive-crusted sea bass on a bed of butternut squash & dried fig risotto and wilted spinach; apple Charolotte timbale and Calvados Ice Cream; brownies and rockie road squares. 
  • Dean Kathy Newman officially rededicated Gilman Hall as the faculty of the humanities departments stood.
  • Fireworks were launched off the bell tower after Newman rededicated the building.
  • As Pam Flaherty quoted Daniel Gilman, an actor playing Gilman joined Flaherty in her recitation and took to the stage. "Gilman" was holding a lamp as he made his way to the stage. 
  • Flaherty and Newman bantered with "Gilman" for a couple minutes.
  • The University gave guests a piece of marble from the old Gilman with a plaque on it commemorating the rededication. 
  • Past University officials were in attendance: Steve Knapp, former Provost and now President of the George Washington University; Adam Falk, former Dean of the Krieger School of Arts & Sciences and now President of Williams College; and William Brody, former President of the University and now President of the Salk Institute for Biological Studies.
