The sketches for this commission were begun on January 7th. On the 15th Schoonover writes in the daybook, “Rod Sharp in studio. To his house. OK on cartoon.” The next day Schoonover continues “Rod Sharp came in with Shields – metal worker.” (day books)
Commentary: A local Wilmington, Delaware newspaper reported that the cartoons (sketches) were in the wall in the Victor & Shields, Inc. metal workshop where Victor Kozlowski, a master metal craftsman worked. It also stated that the statue and its acoutraments were “Designed from actual relics of the Lenni-Lenapi.” (Wilmington
[DE] News Journal, [1937])
The size and the inscription given above are for each of the two sketches pictured.
