44 Summer 2019 | Wake Forest 27587 Magazine PHOTOGRAPHS BY BOB KARP Entombed in the Memorial Chapel are the benefactors for whom Duke University is named, Washington Duke and his two sons, Benjamin N. Duke and, above, James B. Duke. A carved-in-stone likeness of one of the chapel's masons — one of many — that stand watch from on high over Duke Chapel today. A whimsical touch inside the chapel is provided by two wooden "church mice." They were removed during a 2015 restoration but were appropriately returned to their proper places during the Feast of St. Francis. Oops! The chapel's sculpture of Thomas Coke, English Methodist missionary and bishop of the Methodist Episcopal Church, is deceiving. The Thomas Coke meant to be depicted was a heavy, clean-shaven man who wore clerical garb. But this one is thin, in a hat and sporting a beard. It is believed the sculptor accidentally used a photo of a British judge, Lord Chief Justice Thomas Coke, as his model.
