Fakten

  • The Witherspoon Building was built by the Presbyterian Church and featured many design and sculptural elements intent on telling the story of this protestant denomination in the United States.
  • Nine-foot statues of John Witherspoon, Marcus Whitman, James Caldwell, Francis Makemie, Samuel Davies, and John McMillan were originally placed on either side and at the peak of the Walnut and Juniper Street entrances.
  • These statues were of men important to the development of the Presbyterian Church. They were cast by Alexander Sterling Calder, father of Alexander Calder, who was widely known for his modern sculptures and mobiles.
  • An additional ten statues of New Testament prophets once stood on arches at the 8th floor level. These were cast by prominent Philadelphians Samuel Murray and Thomas Eakins.
  • All of these terra-cotta statues were removed in 1961 because of fear of deterioration.
