New quarters

Happened on the plaque put up for the University in Exile's fiftieth anniversary in 1983 today, on the 10th floor of the leased building at 6 East 16th Street where most of the social science departments now reside. In 1983 they were in the converted Lane's department store at 14th Street and Fifth Avenue, which has been torn down and moves closer each day to becoming our new "University Center." I wonder if the plaque will stay with the social sciences, move (with them?) to the new hub, or even back to the 12th Street building which housed the exiles...
