Sculpted by Stephan Anton Friedrich Walter, The Sower is one of several statues James B. Duke bought for his New Jersey estate. The Sower was located at Duke Farm until 1914, when Trinity president John Kilgo mentioned to Duke that he admired the statue; Duke sent the statue to Durham, and Trinity placed the Sower in front of Craven Memorial Hall. When Craven was demolished, the Sower was placed on the former entry path to the campus, near the Stagg Pavilion.
