'Moses' by Elden Tefft, in front of the burning bush at the Department of Religious Studies,
Smith Hall, is a major omission. Also, probably the best sculpture on campus.
rduhrich- I agree. It is too late for the print copy of the LJW but hopefully they can amend the on-line story. Elden is a local and international legend. He is still getting up everyday making beautiful sculpture.
Here's a copy of the Moses photo from the KU buildings directory:
The Victory Eagle sculpture in front of Dyche Hall on the KU campus originally was at the corner of US Highway 40 and Kansas Highway 32 near the Douglas/Leavenworth County line northeast of the Lawrence airport This sculpture was one of many installed along US Higway 40 across the US as the highway was then called "Highway to Victory" following WW1. All were alike; another one was along Highway 40 just west of the entrance into Sandstone Theate, I think Washburn has one as well. Many were vandalized, most were removed from along the highway and many were relocated to places similar to the one at KU .Tom Swearingen who worked at KU's Natural History Museum recovered this one when he found it the ditch by the US40/K32 intersection.
