Magnolia tree gone

A couple days ago I saw a crew cutting down a magnolia tree at the Varsity at Broad and Milledge (the tree closest to the corner). It appeared that some of the branches had brown leaves, so I assume that this tree was in bad health. It is always sad to lose one of the large trees that makes up the familiar landscape around us. (North Campus has lost a lot of trees in the past few years.) I remember reading that these magnolia trees were preserved when the Varsity was built -- does anyone remember the history of this location?
