Stroll straight north of Detchon Center (Yandes Hall) and you’ll now encounter “The Peters Family” bench. It’s positioned to take maximum advantage of a view of the Arboretum.
Gordon Peters ’52 was an important member of the Wabash community for many, many years. He was crucial in the efforts to renovate the Phi Psi House and played a big role in the Class of 1952 reunion gift for their 50th.
Gordon’s family wanted to offer a similar insight into the beauty of Wabash and funded this bench for all to use and enjoy. Bet we’ll see some of those 1952 guys, back for their 60th reunion this weekend, enjoining the view.
