In December 2020, a new gate was unveiled in Harvard Yard, near Houghton Library. It was installed through support from Peter J. Solomon `60, M.B.A. `63, and his wife, Susan, as part of a larger gift, announced in January 2019, to renovate Houghton Library. That donation also included an extensive collection of rare and treasured children`s literature and illustrations, including a copy of the suppressed first edition of “Alice`s Adventures in Wonderland.” These volumes not only provided the catalyst for the Houghton renovation but also inspired some elements of the new gate`s design.
