Who Was the Sculptor in Buckskin?
Library Hall (1289 Lincoln Ave.)
Alexander Phimister Proctor (1860-1959) was deeply revered as both America's premier animal sculptor and an unfailingly warm and enthusiastic human being. Proctor dedicated his life to creating monumental statues throughout the United States, including the Bronco Buster and On the War Trail in Denver, which embody the untamed frontier spirit. Storyteller Dave Lively introduces a man who was an artist, incurable wanderer and confidant of many prominent figures in his day.
