Arthur Brisbane


Arthur Brisbane Sculpture in Central Park

 

This stone memorial sits at the Park's Fifth Avenue perimeter wall. It features an engraved profile of the renowned American newspaper editor for which it was named and an adjacent curved granite bench. Dedicated in 1939, just three years after Brisbane's death, the monument was created by sculptor Richmond Barthe.

Brisbane began his journalism career as editor of Charles A. Dana's newspaper, the Sun and was eventually named Sunday editor of New York World by publisher Joseph Pulitzer. He later wrote for William Randolph Hearst's rival paper, the New York Journal.
