IVAN MESTROVIC 's eight and a half years as a member of the Syracuse University faculty stand as a period of exceptional historical importance for both the sculptor and the institution. For the University, the arrival in 1947 of this world- renowned artist marked not only the beginning of a full-fledged sculpture program, one which rapidly gained national distinction, but also the beginning of a postwar effort to bring to Syracuse scholars and creative artists already eminent in their fields.
