Within the entrance hall to the Yale University Commons the walls are inscribed with the names of Yale graduates who lost their lives in American conflicts from the War of 1812 through Vietnam. The information includes their year of graduation as well as the action in which they lost their life. Most of the plaques and walls of names are dedicated by specific graduating classes from the university. There are a few individual plaques to honor specific individuals and this one honors Horace Tracy Pitkin who died at his post during the Boxer Rebellion in China on July 1, 1900. He had graduated from the Yale Seminary in 1896 and served three years as a missionary in China.
