Abstract

Description

These bronze tigers are the most beloved sculptures on campus, having guarded Nassau Hall since 1911. When it became apparent that the tiger (and not the lion) was to be Princeton�s mascot, the Class of 1879 gave the tigers to the University to replace the lions it had given in 1889. The tigers are the work of Alexander Phimister Proctor, famous for monumental sculptures depicting wildlife and the American west. The model for this pair was a circus tiger.
