Notes:

Exhibit caption: "Youth and Old Age Archway. This Memorial Arch shows a young student seeking knowledge through reading. On the right an older man with flowing beard is shown absorbed in meditation, no longer concerned so much with a source of learning because the old man observes life and engages in original reflection and thought. Along the frieze are [the] words "Library of Congress," inscribed in tall gilt letters. A second inscription names those involved in the building of the Library. The text reads: Erected Under the Acts of Congress of April 15, 1886; October 2, 1888; and March 2, 1889 by Brig. Gen. Thos. Lincoln Casey Chief of Engineers U.S.A. Bernard R. Green Supt. and Engineer John L. Smithmeyer Architect Paul J. Pelz Architect Edward Pearce Casey Architect." (Source: MyLOC.gov Great Hall exhibit, 2008)
