The text is: “In memory of Charles Barrett ’16 who died May 21, 1924 as a result of illness contracted in an explosion on the United States S. Brooklyn in Yokohama Harbor, Japan during the world war. As a tribute to his splendid loyalty and leadership and as homage to a most worthy gridiron adversary we respectfully dedicate this tablet to Cornell University, his teammates, and friends and the 1915 Pennsylvania football team.”
