A memorial Cherry Blossom tree was planted for Whitney Bellinghausen after her death in 2008. Bellinghausen was an American Sign Language student who passed away after being severely injured in a car accident in February, 2008. The tree was dedicated in October, 2008 on her 21st birthday, and it is located between Landers Hall and Lot J.
The image is from the dedication ceremony where the tree is in the middle of the image. Two golden shovels are behind it and were used to plant the tree. To the left of the tree is a statue of a white dog with pink spots wearing a pink hat. In the background Landers Hall and other trees can be seen.
A memorial Flowering Cherry Tree was planted for John Edward Bellamy. Bellamy was a Professor of Humanities from 1955-1982, and he passed away in 2000. The tree is located near the front entrance to Hamersly Library on the south side.
The image is of the tree in spring where it is covered in blossoms. The tree takes up the majority of the frame, but a blue sky and the library can be seen in the background.
The plaque beneath the tree reads "John Edward Bellamy 11-18-1917 - 9-25-2000 Professor of Humanities 1955-1982 'He gave us a different way to be, and it was our better selves that he nurtured.' L. Pollock '72."
