The expressive hands of Madame
August M. Borglum, an Omaha wom
an and his sister-in-law, were mod
eled by Solon Borglum, the celebrated
artist,1 in his sculpture "The Gentle
Closing of Two Lives," known as the

Madame Borglum was visiting at

to use my hands for that part of the
work," said Madame Borglum, a.

two bronzes by Solon Borglum, have
been purchased by C. N. Dietz.
