Caltech cannon upgrades to better tech school


Almost exactly 20 years ago, Students from Harvey Mudd College pulled one over on their rival Caltech by relocating a Spanish-American War cannon from Caltech’s Fleming House to their own campus. Now the cannon has a new home: MIT hackers posing as the Howe & Ser Moving Company have relocated the cannon to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology campus in Cambridge, MA. The cannon now also sports a giant gold-plated Brass Rat, the MIT class ring. A plaque dedicating the cannon notes that “In honor of its previous owners, the cannon points towards Pasadena, CA.”
