a l u m n i n e w s New life for the Old Oak The Old Oak was a majestic presence here since the chartering of Linfield in 1858. Although its stately branches no longer offer shelter from sun and rain, it is still very much a part of daily life at the college. In addition to a commemorative plaque where the Old Oak stood near Pioneer Hall, its wood has been used to create beautifully crafted furniture around campus. The items include: • Accent table, Pioneer Hall Reading Room • Accent table, Jonasson Hall, Melrose Hall • Accent tables, Academic Affairs, Melrose Hall • Bar front cladding and top cap of counter, chair rail around the wall and commemorative wall plaque featuring the story of the Old Oak, Starbucks, Riley Hall • Display case, bowl and pedestal stand used for tradition of acorns at convocation and commencement • Conference table, 021 Melrose Hall • Conference table, President’s office, Melrose Hall • Podiums • Window benches, Taylor Hall linfield.edu/linfield-news/oldoak Clockwise from top left; conference table in Melrose Hall; accent table in the Office of Academic Affairs; bowl used for the tradition of the acorns at convocation and commencement; closeup of wood in the accent table in Academic Affairs; seal on the podium used for lectures and presentations; and pedestal for the bowl.
