Black and white photograph of the cornerstone of the Administration Building. It is carved with the Rice shield, a variation of the Texas State Shield, the year in Roman numerals, and a inscription in Greek. The inscription is from the Praeparatio Evangelica of Eusebius Pamphili and translates to: 'Rather,' said Democritus, 'would I discover the cause of one fact than become King of the Persians.'
