1. The Mel Carnahan Quadrangle Marker
Inscription. Dedicated September 12, 2003, in honor of Mel Carnahan, Missouri's 51st Governor and alumnus of the University of Missouri. From his days as a law student at MU to his leadership as Governor of Missouri from 1993 - 2000, Mel Carnahan served his beloved state and its people. He was a loyal and strong supporter of the University of Missouri and public higher education throughout his life. As public service and the University were always close to Mel Carnahan's heart, so this special place in the heart of the campus is named in his honor.
 
Erected 2003 by James B. Nutter Family.
