Quennell Rothschild & Partners, of New York, the landscape planning and design consultant for Princeton University, has collaborated with Jon Hlafter, former director of physical planning at the university, on a campus Memorial Garden in honor of the13 Princeton alumni who lost their lives in the September 11 terrorist attacks. The Princetonian reported the Memorial Garden was dedicated on a drizzling Saturday, Sept. 13, 2003, by Shirley Tilghman, president of the University, and the alumni council. Princeton student Chloe Wohlforth spoke in remembrance of her father, Martin Wohlforth, class of '76; Ellen Mello, mother of Christopher Mello, class of '98, payed tribute to her son and the other victims of 9-11. Hlafter's design is 13 gold stars circling a paved walkway within the garden that displays the names and class years of the alumni killed in the attack. The entrance to the garden is a bronze Remembrance Bell created by Toshiko Takaezu, a visual arts professor. The bell was tolled 13 times in memoriam. Quennell Rothschild & Partners will be restoring the university's older landscapes over the next five years. The firm also does the landscaping for all new building development on the campus.
