Comments and Notes
NAME: Roscoe Conkling
MAINTENANCE: Community group -- Madison Square Park Conservancy
SOURCES: Catalogue, Works of Art Belonging to New York City; Craven, Sculpture in America; Fried and Gillon, New York Civic Sculpture; Gayle and Cohen, Guide to Manhattan's Outdoor Sculpture; Lederer, All Around the Town; Reynolds, Monuments and Masterpieces; Sharp, John Quincy Adams Ward; SIRIS; Saltus and Tisne, Statues of New York; Taft, History of American Sculpture.
COMMENT: Saltus, above, copyright 1922, writes the statue "stands in Union Square, not far from the spot...." while the Catalogue, Works of Art (also above), copyright 1909, correctly notes that Conklin stands in Madison Square. The sponsors had recommended Union Square, but city officials did not agree to their request.
