On the first anniversary of May 4, a small group stood in prayer and dedicated a cast aluminum plaque to the memory of Allison Krause, Jeffrey Miller, Sandra Scheuer, and William Schroeder. This marker, which had been financed by and cast under the direction of B'nai B'rith Hillel, lay unanchored at the foot of a tree in the parking lot adjacent to Prentice Hall until it disappeared on the evening of May 3, 1974.
In February 1975, a faculty committee collected contributions for a new marker which was dedicated on May 3, 1975. For 15 years this granite stone served as a focal point of May 4 memorial observances on the Kent campus. Every year on the evening of May 3, it marks the end of the candlelight procession that weaves its way around the campus starting at the Victory Bell and ending at this marker where participants leave the remains of their lit candles in remembrance.
