Gettysburg Address, Abraham Lincoln bust removed from Cornell library after ‘complaint’: professor
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 bust of Lincoln and the bronzed plaque of the 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.
Wayne said he noticed the display was missing a few weeks ago and asked librarians what happened. He was told the display was removed after some type of complaint, but was not provided further details, according to the College Fix.
