Bronze plaque honoring Noah Pinkney for years of dedication and service to the college community. Pinkney, a former slave, sold pretzels and sandwiches on campus and at that spot outside the gate for over 40 years. The plaque was formerly mounted on the Class of 1905 Gate on North West St. near East College during the tenure of President Edel, a member of the class of 1915 who had fond memories of Pinkney. The plaque bears the words, "Rest here a while, Dickinsonians, near the East College Gate where for more than forty years Noah Pinkney, former slave and Christian gentleman, sold pretzels and gave lavishly of friendship. 'Fine as silk, sah, fine as silk.' To many generations of Dickinsonians 'Pink' was as much a part of the college as the mermaid on Old West. Born in 1846, he passed over Jordan on August 6, 1923, 'And all the trumpets sounded for him on the other side.'"
