1930 - Hermon A. MacNeil's Monument to Judge Thomas Burke in Seattle, WA

Hermon A. MacNeil sculpted this bronze bas-relief in 1929. He fashioned accompanying allegorical figures of Justice and an American Indian on either side. C. F. Gould, architect, designed the pedestal-bench-plaza.  Dedicated in 1930, the monument  honors pioneer Judge Thomas Burke (1849-1925) – “patriot, jurist, orator, friend, patron of education”, promoter of Pacific Rim harmony and trade; instrumental in bringing transcontinental railroad to Seattle.  Cost: 50,000; memorial contributed by admirers of Judge Burke.
