Description

Watch Fob of black ribbon with a gold nugget and a sapphire. The fob is framed with 3 description points that read as follows:

"AWARD TO CHANCELLOR EDWARD CHARLES ELLIOTT- 1922"

"This watch fob, made of a Montana gold nugget and Montana Sapphire, was awarded to the late Dr. Edward Charles Elliott, Chancellor of the University of Montana System, 1916-1922. Chancellor Elliot was again honored when, in 1965, the marries student housing complex on the Missoula campus was named Elliot Village. The fob was returned to the University of Montana by his four children in 1974, the centennial year of his birth, as a token of their deep affection for the State of Montana and its fine university system."

"Excerpt from Executive Council Proceedings, August 14-15, 1922"

"Director Linchfield expressed briefly the regret of the members of the Council at Chancellor Elliot's approaching departure from Montana and voiced their appreciation of his services, and especially the very gratifying experiences of the past six and a half years. On behalf of the members of the Council, he presented Chancellor Elliot with a watch fob of a Montana gold nugget enclosing a Montana Sapphire. Chancellor Elliott made a feeling response, dwelling especially upon his gratification at recalling the spirit of fair play that had always characterized the relations between himself and the members of the council."
