    <> Berzelius Society Tomb 1908 Donn Barber. Trumbull St. 78. Originally this was a Sheffield Scientific School fraternity. I believe the architect also designed the Yale Bowl . <> This has to be one of the greatest doors at Yale, e.g. Book and Snake and Scroll and Key. <> Above the door, off camera in this shot, is the society's coat of arms, a capital B in Gothic script surrounded by a strange triangle. This represents the "Kaliapparat", a fancy piece of glass tubing used to assay the carbon content of a given substance. You can find the same triangle carved on the Sterling Chemistry Laboratory, but I am not sure exactly where it is located.
