McKinley memorialization.
Named persons
Edwin A. Abbey; Edward VII; William McKinley.


In the monuments that are to be erected to McKinley—and worthily erected to a good and beloved President—it is respectfully hoped that the selection of the designs and the supervision of the work will be placed in charge of experienced and competent men who have good taste and artistic appreciation. We have far too many caricatures of great men both in Washington and in other cities. This country is rich enough to afford the best, and nothing less than the best should be chosen. In this, therefore, the competitions should be thrown open to the world. King Edward selected an American artist—Mr. Abbey—to paint the chief picture of his elevation to the throne, because he was the best man for the work. The United States should not be less broad.
