Thobe's fountain, then and (kind of) now. Harry Thobe built this fountain in the early 1900's, leaving his mark on Miami. He was one of the most spirited Miami fans the school has seen: he attended every Homecoming game dressed in a white suit and hat, carried an umbrella and a megaphone and covered his teeth in diamonds! His eccentric personality is remembered fondly by most, even though the fountain no longer stands. It was removed in 1959 due to disrepair and replaced by a plaque and a monument. However, it is believed that his spirit lives on there, which you can awaken by standing west of the fountain, facing the nearest oak tree and calling out his name.

Ogden Hall, then and now. This residence hall was built in 1923 thanks to a donation from Laura Ogden Whaling, who asked for a hall to be created in honor of her brother. With her donation came several requests, including placing the hall west of Herron Gym and, rumor has it, to build a wall around it to keep it isolated. Although some Miamians believe that the wall was built underground, this is actually the foundation of Herron Gym, which was moved to accommodate Ogden. Today, the hall is used as a residence and was renovated to include a dining hall with many different food options.
