Is This ‘Silent Killer’ Murdering Your Manhood? 



ors are double-height limestone pilasters with gilded capitals. Several portraits were hung in both rooms. The trustees' room, to the east, was decorated by the Herter Brothers with oak paneling. The center of the trustees' room has a Georgian-style fireplace mantel, which contains a broken pediment holding an iron crown from King's College, the predecessor of Columbia University. The mantel has a cornerstone from King's College's original building, as well as a portrait of the college's founding president Samuel Johnson.

The rest of the vestibule's walls have plaster panels, bordered by green-and-gold acanthus-leaf motifs, and band courses with Greek fretwork. Each corner of the vestibule has a pilaster similar to those flanking the west and east doors, as well as a wrought-iron lamp. The south wall has a narrow balcony, which is illuminated by a lattice of crossbars, while the north wall is a double window above a set of four steps to the rotunda. Laurel leaves and medallions divide the ceiling of the vestibule into nine coffers. The central coffer has a bronze lantern above the Pallas Athena bust.

The floor has alternating squares and circles, made of marble and laid in hues of red, yellow, and black-and-white. There is a bronze bas-relief of the university's seal at the center of the floor.

In the longer passages, the walls have Doric-style limestone pilasters as well as orange plaster panels, bordered by leaf motifs and band course like those in the vestibule. There are also oak panels, which correspond to the former bookcases of the rotunda. The south hallway contains a pair of green double-height Connemara marble columns, screening it from the entrance vestibule. The columns each weigh 25 short tons (22 long tons; 23 t); they were quarried out of the largest blocks of Connemara marble that were available when the library was built. The ceiling of the south hallway is divid
