Archival MaterialDedication of Chi Epsilon Key( 1945)One black and white photograph of the dedication of the Chi Epsilon key monument in September 1945. The cover of the 15 September 1945 Technique has a brief article about the monument, entitled, "Honorary CE Frat Erects Bronze Key." The article reads, in part, "Under the direction of J.H. Henika the work which began last semester . . . has been completed and the pieces have been mounted in front of the CE Building. Made of cast bronze, the key was designed for the honorary Civil Engineering fraternity by Mr. Henika and cast by a Chi Epsilon working crew which included Homer Flippen, Joe Foy, David Tudeen, Frank Smith, and H.M. Furman, president. The key, as faithful duplicate . . . even to the red setting in the center, weighs almost 100 pounds and was mounted on a concrete base." The photograph found in this collection was also printed next to the article, under the heading, "Chi Epsilon Mounts Key." The photograph caption reads, "Members of Chi Epsilon, honorary civil engineering fraternity, completed the erection of a key in front of the CE Building this week. Present for the mounting ceremonies were, front row, left to right, Caldwell Englund, Bruce Parsons, James Paul [Paulk], Avery Ingram, Homer Hurd, and Farris Gibbs. Standing are Frank Smith, Professor Jennings, Hal Furman, Dave Tudeen, Homer Flippen, T.H. Evans, head of the CE department, Bill Robinson, J.R. [sic] Henika, who designed the key, and Joe Foy." All of the students appearing in this photograph graduated in late 1945-1946.
