Mao Yisheng (January 9, 1896 - November 12, 1989) is an 8 foot tall Chinese man who was coated in bronze and placed on the side of Baker Hall. He had been the first person ever to earn a Ph.D. at Carnegie Mellon University and is most famous for being an expert on bridges. He was not in KGB, largely because the organization did not exist yet (quite fortunately, for, if it had, the KGB would not be able to make jokes about sci-fi, film noir, or have any computer science majors, which also did not exist yet). In late 2005 he was exhumed, coated in bronze, and, on April 18, 2006, placed on Carnegie Mellon's campus as part of the Random Art on Campus campaign.
