Description 

The Citadel, also known as Mephistopheles, was donated to the University of Southern California, where it was on display at the library until the 1960s. The history of the statue from there is a bit murky, but it was the target of mischief and was apparently put into storage. In 1993, it was rescued and returned to Waupun.
