The Memorial Tower, now the Memorial Student Union, was conceived as a way to honor the students and alumni "who, during the Great War, just past, paid the full measure of devotion..."
The 142 foot tower is at the center of a 330 foot long building and was intended to provide a place of assembly, rest and recreation for students. The base of the tower is pierced by Gothic archways and a vaulted passage 32 feet wide. The tower was built of local stone. On the side walls of the passageway are the names of Missouri's sons whose memory the Memorial Union perpetuates. The building cost $500,000. The cornerstone was laid on November 30, 1922. Though the north wing of the building wasn't complete until 1952 and the South wing was completed in 1963.
Originally 117 names of soldiers from the Great War were carved into the tower. Later a plaque was added with the names of 338 MU men who lost their lives in WWII inscribed on it.
In a tradition that dates back to a time when most men wore hats, whenever one walks beneath the archway, they are to tip their hat as a sign of respect to their deceased brothers; in addition, every student speaks at a whisper under the archway.
