This bowl was turned from a maple tree that grew in front of the President's House at 43 Hillhouse Ave. It was about 40 years old when it was removed on July 3, 2013 as part of the renovation of the house. The tree was removed the same week that Peter Salovey became the 23rd President of Yale University. Lumber from this tree was used to make furniture for the residential quarters. It is 9 1/2" in diameter and 4 1/2" high. It is bowl #38 of the 43 bowls we will turn from the 43 Hillhouse Elm.
