The Centennial Grove of twelve trees commemorating the twelve women leaders of the last century in the United States of America was dedicated in Dallas, Texas, on March 13, by the Texas Historic Nut Tree Planting Association, which had inaugurated the project. The women leaders, it will be recalled, were selected in the poll taken in 1932 under the auspices of The Ladies' Home Journaland sponsored by the National Council of Women. The grove was planted on the grounds of the Hockaday Junior College, a school of high rating for girls, in Dallas, Texas, rather than on the campus of the Southern Methodist University, as was first announced.
The trees came from places associated with the twelve women named as leaders. That for Mary Baker Eddy came from her birthplace at Bow, New Hampshire, and was furnished by The Christian Science Board of Directors. It is a maple tree in the size recommended by the Planting Association as suitable for transfer to another and different climate and environment. Each tree is marked by a bronze marker, that for Mrs. Eddy bearing the inscription:NO. 1MARY BAKER EDDY DISCOVERER AND FOUNDER OF CHRISTIAN SCIENCETHIS TREE FROM HER BIRTHPLACE, AT BOW, N. H.1935On the occasion of the dedication, Mr. Harry B. MacRae, of Dallas, said:Friends:
