The Weeping Beech (Fagus sylvatica 'Pendula') is a deciduous tree that blooms in the Spring. In 1847, Samuel Parsons brought the first Weeping Beech tree to the U.S. from Europe. It was his son Samuel Parsons Jr. who introduced it to the Bryn Mawr Campus. In order to commemorate the Weeping Beech tree, it was made the class tree of the Class of 1938.
