This rectangular bronze metal plaque hung by the old East College gate, replacing an earlier plaque that had been stolen but not recovered until after this replacement was created. The plaque features a passage written in honor of Noah Pinkney. Though never an employee of Dickinson College, Pinkney sold pretzels, sandwiches, ice cream, cakes, and pies to Dickinson students and staff members. He was fixture in any around campus for decades, and was very fondly remembered by generations of Dickinsonians. 

This plaque was removed in 2011 during repairs and restoration to the East College gate, and a newer plaque with updated language was installed in its place in 2012.
