June 14, 1930 - Bedford stone selected for statue: Upon recommendation of Sidney Bedore, noted sculptor, the county committee on public buildings, and the civic committee in charge of raising funds for the statue, agreed yesterday, that the statue should be reproduced in Bedford stone, and should be placed on the courthouse lawn about midway between the northeast corner of the courthouse and the intersection of Jefferson and Walnut-sts.

In discussing the material, Mr. Bedore declared that the stone should be in harmony with the building which is to be used as a background.

As to the financial arrangement, it was agreed by those present that the county committee was purchasing from Mr. Bedore a finished statue like the model of the "Spirit of the Northwest," which is now on display in the Manthey Monument building, for $7,500 of which $3,750 is to be paid by Brown County, and $3,750 by the civic committee.
