James Harmon Hoose Library of Philosophy, USC

Reading Room

A wood carving of a"scholar" holding two candles, similar to the kind that are used in religious processions. To the right of the "scholar" are five "students" and to the left are five "students". At both bottom corners there are four books. Perhaps the scholar is leading the younger generation to wisdom and truth.
