Gazette & Courier - Monday, June 7, 1875
Mount Holyoke Seminary

The exercises attending the laying of the corner stone of the new art building [See the Wikipedia article on the Mount Holyoke College Art Museum]...were of a very interesting character. The trustees of the institution were well represented, including Prof's Tyler, Hitchcock and Julius Seelye of Amherst College, Sidney E. Bridgman of Northampton, A.L. Williston of Florence and Andrew W. Porter of Monson, while a goodly number of the general public were also present...Among the contributions already made to the new art gallery are full size oil portraits of Washington, Franklin and Webster from the studio of Joseph G. Chandler [Joseph Goodhue Chandler] of Boston.
