Historic Wall Plaster and Graffiti 3D Model
In 2009, CAP made an incredible discovery - a chunk of wall plaster that was well-preserved and showed a partial signature. Even more incredible was the discovery of a historic photo in the MSU Archives showing the exact smae piece of signed plaster within the rest of the plastered wall and with even more signatures. In May 1887, Alexander Moore and 6 of his fellow MAC students helped do repairs on College Hall. To mark the occasion, they signed their names on a wall under the words “Darn Hard Job.” Over 120 years later, CAP archaeologists found this fragment of their graffiti. We never would have learned the backstory of this week’s Artifact of the Week without finding a historical photograph of the graffiti in the Michigan State University Archives.
