Who made the commemorative Gaillard plaque?

The bronze sculpture of the Gaillard plaque was the work of the notable american artist James Earl Fraser in 1927. It was manufactured by Kuntz Foundry of New York. On February 4th, 1928 the plaque was dedicated to the memory of Colonel David DuBoise and was placed on Contractor's Hill. It was removed from Contractor's Hill, due to the cut widening project and relocated at the steps of the Administration Building. The plaque was a gift from the Gaillard family.
