30 May 1881 – 14 February 1957
I don't know how many times I have driven around Queen's Park in Toronto and down University Avenue, and marvelled at the great memorial statues which look out at the flow of life that moves around them.
I recently chanced upon information about Emanuel Otto Hahn, who was one of Canada's early sculptors. He was born in Germany and emigrated to Canada.
Emanuel studied at the Toronto Technical School and the Ontario College of Art and Industrial Design,
Among his many works you will find:
the Alexander Graham Bell Memorial in Brantford
the Baldwin-Lafontaine Monument in Ottawa
the Ned Hanlon on Toronto's CNE grounds
the Sir Adam Beck statues in Toronto
the bronze Native Indian Statue at the National Art Gallery of Canada
and the bluenose dime, the caribou quarter and the voyaguer silver dollar
