Adams Memorial

Henry Adams asked his friend Augustus Saint Gaudens, the most prominent American sculptor, to design a figure as a memorial to Adams’s late wife, Marion Hopper, known as Clover.  She was an accomplished photographer.  Another friend, architect Stanford White designed the classical base and rear panel.  Henry Adams is also buried there, but no names appear.
