Gordon is one of a short list of institutions with a monument from the Gravity Research Foundation. Others include Babson, Middlebury, Eastern Nazarene, Tufts and Wheaton. Gordon’s monument is located on the edge of the quad, between MacDonald and the Ken Olsen Science Center.
Babson’s views were “reflected by the wording in the announcement of the first essay competition [sponsored by the Foundation] that said the awards were to be given for suggestions for anti-gravity devices, for partial insulators, reflectors, or absorbers of gravity.”
