We design a stabilizing linear boundary feedback control for a one-link flexible manipulator with rotational inertia. The system is modelled as a Rayleigh beam rotating around one endpoint, with the torque at this endpoint as the control input. The closed-loop system is nondissipative, so that its well posedness is not easy to establish. We study the asymptotic properties of the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of the corresponding operator $\mathcal A$ and establish that the generalized eigenvectors form a Riesz basis for the energy state space. It follows that $\mathcal A$ generates a $C_0$-semigroup that satisfies the spectrum-determined growth assumption. This semigroup is exponentially stable under certain conditions on the feedback gains. If the higher-order feedback gain is set to zero, then we obtain a polynomial decay rate for the semigroup.
