Inscription.

Dedicated to the highest principles, President Robert L. D. "Larry" Davidson was a leader of character during times of both prosperity and adversity. As the 15th president of Westminster College, Davidson passionately invested in students, encouraged colleagues, and relished the challenges of higher education. Davidson was responsible for establishing the Winston Churchill Memorial and Library and bringing Ch[r]istopher Wren's Church of St. Mary, the Virgin, Aldermanbury, to the Westminster campus. Under Davidson's innovative leadership from 1955 to 1973, the College rose to new heights in enrollment, academic excellence, in facilities and in funding.

Leadership Plaza was dedicated on October 6, 2001 to commemorate Westminster College's 150th Anniversary and to honor president Emeritus Dr. [Robert] L. D. "Larry" Davidson
