A Columbia University committee, after hearing a performance of McDowell's Indian Suite by the Boston Symphony Orchestra on January 23, 1896, decided to recommend MacDowell as the university's first professor of music. The cup is engraved with the names of his students and inscribed, "with the high esteem and affection of his classes at Columbia University."
