King Mehendra's Party
History:  The King of Nepal's visit 

President Eisenhower wasn't the only famous guest at Hianloland Farm. In May of 1960, His Majesty Mahendra Bir Bikram Shah Deva, the king of Nepal, and his wife visited at the end of a 36-day tour of the United States and Canada. In thanks, the king gave Jones a pair of large coffee tables that incorporate bronze engravings of cultural scenes of Nepal, both of which are still in use on campus today.
