GUTZON BORGLUM The sculptor signed and dated this card from Washington, DC's Metropolitan Club with a small flower in 1923. This card was signed four years before he began designing Mount Rushmore National Monument Autograph Note Signed: "Aug. 6 - 1923/To Vivian Liddle:/Sincerely yours -/Gutzon Borglum". Borglum has also drawn a small flower whose stem crosses his siganture. With pencil notations in unknown hand on verso. 5x 3 3/4 card. Imprinted at top: "Metropolitan Club/Washington, DC". Borglum (1867-1941, born John Gutzon de la Mothe Borglum in St. Charles, Idaho), already famous for creating the great head of Lincoln in the U.S. Capitol rotunda, was commissioned to begin work on a "shrine of democracy" in 1927. After selecting Mount Rushmore as its site, he began work on 60-foot-high heads of Presidents George Washington (unveiled in 1930), Thomas Jefferson (1936), Abraham Lincoln (1937) and Theodore Roosevelt (1939), chosen to represent epic symbols of America. Borglum, who developed innovative stone-working methods to accomplish the massive project, died in 1941, leaving his son Lincoln to complete the finishing details. Lightly toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
