Inscription.  
James A. Garfield was a student, faculty member and then served as Hiram College's Principal (then the Western Reserve Eclectic Institute) from 1857-63 and as President of the United States from 1880 until his assassination in 1881.

The Martin Family, led by the family patriarch Paul E. Martin, has a legacy of generosity. Sons, Fred Martin '64 and James Martin '65, along with Jim's wife, Karen (Wierwille) Martin '64 have carried on the Martin Family legacy at Hiram College with their own benevolence and advocacy.

One of Paul's last acts of philanthropy was to purchase the statue that stands before you.
