Hoboken is well known for many great things, especially being home to world-renowned Stevens Institute of Technology. Roaming the campus, there is so much history. Encircled by a small garden stands a Torch Bearers sculpture. Designed by artist Anna Hyatt Huntington in 1953, the sculpture consists of a nude male figure sitting atop a rearing horse reaching down to accept a torch from another male on the ground. The statue is one of three in the world and has adorned the Stevens lawn since the 1960s. It’s an iconic symbol on campus that signifies the passing of knowledge, exactly what happens at Stevens. ••
