The McKinley Monument: A Tribute to a Fallen President
Author: Christopher Kenney
The McKinley Monument: A Tribute to a Fallen President, by the Museum’s Director of Education, Christopher Kenney. The book not only presents the construction of the memorial, it also provides a look at President McKinley’s life and tragic death, a biographical sketch of architect Harold Van Buren Magonigle, and the poignant dedication ceremony. It includes many never-before-seen photographs, including the designs that were not chosen and rare shots of some of the workers. As the community celebrates the century makr of a spectacular national landmark, the author has brought the story into the modern age, recording the extensive renovation work and conservation measures that will preserve the McKinley National Memorial for at least another 100 years. Copies of the book are available in the Museum Shoppe. The book is $19.99 plus $4.50 shipping and handling.
