THE STATUE OF LIBERTY
The Statue of Liberty was dedicated on October 28, 1886, after more than
twenty years of planning, fund raising, and construction.
I'll explain how she was built and what she symbolizes, and introduce some
of the people involved in her creation, including sculptor Frederic
Bartholdi, engineer Gustave Eiffel, architect Richard Morris Hunt, and
newspaper publisher Joseph Pulitzer. I conclude the program with brief
histories of Ellis Island and Liberty State Park. The slide show includes my
original photography of the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and New York
Harbor views, plus vintage images of historic people, places, and events.
