John Wilkes Statue

Standing near the entrance to Farley Library, you will find a towering, 8-foot bronze monument to our namesake, rabble-rousing English politician and colonial symphathizer John Wilkes. Cast in the very same mold as the original in England, it stands as a grand symbol of both his legacy and ours.
