Notes: The University of New Brunswick had considered the idea of a Sculpture Garden since the university purchased Henry Purdy's "Virgin" sculpture under the advisement of Bruno Bobak, an honourary painter-in-residence at UNB. William H.A. Long (BA 1895) made a generous donation and asked that this bequest assist in campus landscaping and beautification. It was after this that the project was set in motion. Financial assistance was also given by the Associated Alumnae. The three sculptures included in the garden, all previously owned by the university, were Claude Roussel's "((Claude Roussel, Man of Science|Man of Science))," Henry Purdy's "Virgin," and Rick Seguin's "Norfolk Pike." Two benches and two table-benches were also installed on the site.
