William H. Seward Memorial by Claude S. Seward
This project to memorialize William H. Seward, Union
College Class of 1820, symbolizes the
ideals he devoted his entire life to upholding: the abolition of slavery, the
bettering of American public schools, the improvement of the American political
system, and the boosting of the national economy. This project is also a
recognition of Seward's commitment not just to his country, but to our very own
Union College; even while Seward was running for President of the United States
of America, he found time to serve as president of the Union College Alumni
Association. Furthermore, this project symbolizes what Union and Schenectady can
accomplish together and acknowledges that both the city and the college are
equal, co-dependant halves of one greater whole.
The Union-Schenectady Initiative deserves true praise for what it has done and will do for the City of Schenectady and for Union College. This memorial is the perfect gesture to crown the efforts of both the city and college. It is a gift of pride and inspiration to future generations of students, residents, and visitors who may gaze upon it, reminding them that history is happening, and will happen here and everywhere, and asking them, what will you do for your country, community, and fellow human?
