This BEAUTIFUL bronze medal was engraved by Adolph Alexander Weinman (born in Karlsruhe/Germany, 1870-1952). He was born in Germany but he went to the United States at the age of ten. Weinmann first studied at the Cooper Union School in New York, later for five years at the studio of the sculptor Martiny. He improved his artistic skills as a student of the famous Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Weinmann is very famous for designing the "Walking liberty" on the half-dollar and ten-cent coins of 1916.

The GRAND PRIZE MEDAL is referenced as belonging also to the Olympics Story (see Gadoury Nr.6/52)
