1. Chemistry Courtyard Marker
Inscription.  On the occasion of his retirement, the development of this courtyard is dedicated to Mr. Kevin Brown and the men and women of the Department of Building and Landscape Services who helped it grow.

For more than 30 years Mr. Brown played a key role in the university's efforts to protect the environment, enhance the beauty of the campus, and expand the green spaces. This courtyard provides a space for students, faculty and staff to teach, learn, think, and enjoy activities that are at the very heart of the institution. Mr. Brown's love of nature, dedication to the University, and commitment to improving the campus are evident in this space and many others.

Take a moment, relax, reflect, and enjoy the beauty of this courtyard.
 
Erected 2006 by University of Maryland.
