A bust of President Abraham Lincoln and a plaque of the Gettysburg address have been removed from a Cornell University library.
“Someone complained, and it was gone,” Cornell biology professor Randy Wayne told the College Fix of the matter.
The article goes on to state the following:
The bust of Lincoln and the bronzed plaque of the former president’s historic 1863 address had been in the Kroch Library, where the university’s Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections is located, since 2013.
The professor did inquire about the missing items and the only response he received is that somebody complained.
The communications team for Cornell told Fox News Digital that the pieces were only a “temporary exhibit.”
Rebecca Valli, director of media relations at Cornell University, told Fox News Digital on Tuesday, “President Lincoln’s bust was part of a temporary exhibit on the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address. The bust was on display in the Rare and Manuscript Collections from 2013 to 2021.”
Valli continued, “Cornell proudly possesses one of five known copies of the Gettysburg Address in Lincoln’s hand. The original is safely sequestered, with a digital facsimile on permanent display. Additionally, five electronic Lincoln exhibitions are available for 24/7 viewing online.”
Wayne told Fox News Digital, “When I take my students to RMC each semester, I have one of them read the original in Lincoln’s hand. I am in tears each time I hear a student read those words.”
Wayne said to College Fix, “The Gettysburg Address is an incredible speech. We have a handwritten copy in Lincoln’s hand. It is known as the Bancroft Copy. It comes with an envelope signed by Lincoln (using his franking privilege), and a letter to Bancroft, thanking him for requesting a copy of the address to put in a book to be sold for charity.”
