There is a statue of him at the Milwaukee Public Library. He was a Milwaukee politician, businessman and diplomat. However a brief google search yields no biographies on him.
My point being that someone liked him enough to have a statue commissioned.
The artist was Gaetamo or Gaetano Trentanove (Spelling?)
