Excerpt from Proceedings of University Council, November 15, 1921, University Day, February 22, 1922, Commencement Day, June 14, 1922 Marshal Ferdinand Foch, Commander-in-Chief of the Allied Armies in the war against Germany and the Central Powers, paid a visit to the University of Pennsylvania on Tuesday afternoon, November 15, 1921. The University conferred upon him the honorary degree of Doctor of Laws. For the occasion Dr. Penniman declared a half holiday and almost the entire undergraduate body, together with the faculty, and a multitude of citizens and alumni, were massed about the Franklin Statue in front of the gymnasium where the degree was conferred. Marshal Foch stood upon almost the exact spot where Marshal Joffre and Premier Viviani, of France, stood when they received similar degrees during their visit in April, 1917. The conferring of the honorary degree ranked with the visit to Independence Hall as the two principal incidents in the Marshals visit to Philadelphia. The distinguished French officer reached the University at 3.50 o'clock, accompanied by Governor William C. Sproul, who, in his capacity as Governor of the Commonwealth and President ex-officio of the Board of Trustees, presented the Marshal to Acting Provost Penniman. For an hour before the time scheduled for the Marshals visit a dense crowd stood in front of the University gymnasium and lined Thirty-third Street from Spruce to Walnut. The entire R. O. T. C. battalion, with the University Band, members of the Board of Trustees and faculty in their academic robes, together with the undergraduate body, massed around the Franklin Statue as the Marshal's automobile drove up. Marshal Foch, who was accompanied by Governor Sproul, received an immense cheer as he alighted. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
