Founder of Dickinson CollegeEntering this gateway to Dickinson College, you can see the statue of the college's founder, Dr. Benjamin Rush (1745-1813). The bronze statue, which was erected in 2004, is a replica of a statue unveiled 100 years earlier at the Navy's Bureau of Medicine and Surgery in Washington, D.C. Like that monument, this statue recognizes Rush's contributions to American history, medicine and education.
