The class of 1930 at its 50th reunion honors Benjamin Franklin founder of the University of Pennsylvania which began at this site in 1749 and which in 1779 became the first university in this nation. We recognize the growth of our beloved institution from small beginning to world renown. May our fellow men note our affection for the university and our respect for its architect. May 1980
