Founder’s Day was observed for the second time.  The Muse of the Past, the Genius of Progress and her attendants, Science, Art, Religion and Music appeared in a student pageant, and "as the Genius of Progress alluded to Vassar College and spoke of the Founder she exclaimed, ‘Behold his features!’ the signal for the curtain at the rear of the stage to be parted, revealing [his marble] bust against a background of evergreens.”     Frances A. Wood, Earliest Years at Vassar
