11. A Missing Sculpture on the Columbia Campus Turned Up in Ann Arbor, Michigan

Sundial sculpture

Many assumed this sphere centrally located on the Columbia campus had been destroyed but, almost 60 years later, in 2001, the sundial resurfaced in a field of Ann Arbor that may or may not have belonged to an individual with university affiliations. The current sundial has a less exalted history, with the sculptor unknown. The story behind what happened to the original sundial remains somewhat mysterious and the base remains on campus, engraved with the words Horam Expecta Veniet or await this hour, time will come.
