The Sesquicentennial celebration marking the 150th anniversary of the founding of the University lasted for five sunny days, October 11 to 15, 1914. No expense was spared and Friends of Brown contributed the entire cost of the festivities. College Hill was festooned with ropes of laurel draped from the trolley poles. Japanese lanterns lit up the campus, and fence posts sported wooden tubs of evergreens and autumn berries. University Hall was illuminated as it had been for earlier celebrations.
