Liberty Memorial Design Proposals Collection
Not available online
TitleLiberty Memorial Design Proposals Collection
AbstractThis one box, 15 folder collection contains 43 black and white photographs measuring 8" x 10" of various views of the entries that were submitted to the Liberty Memorial design contest. They are in the order in which they had been bound, leaving some folders with images from several different entrants. Each photograph is identified as to the designer. Date processed: June, 1998.
NotesIn 1921 the Liberty Memorial Association held a contest to determine the designer of the memorial. The competition was limited to five invited competitors from outside the state of Missouri and to any legitimate practicing architect or firm of architects, resident and doing business in Kansas City. The total number of entrants was 11, and they were: Bliss and Faville (San Francisco); Paul P. Cret, and Zantzinger, Borie, and Medary (Philadelphia); Bertram G. Goodhue (New York); H. Van Buren Magonigle (New York); and, from Kansas City: Brostrom and Drotts; Edward Buehler Delk; Greenbaum, Hardy, and Schumacher; Hoit, Price, and Barnes; Keene and Simpson; Selby H. Kurfiss; and Wight and Wight. Magonigle was the overwhelming favorite of the judges, though later financial constraints on the project prevented his original submission from reaching fruition.
