TitleBoilermaker, statue
DescriptionWorkers with J.R. Kelly Co. Inc. of Lafayette, Ind.,  on Monday (Sept. 26, 2005) get ready to hoist a statue, called "The Boilermaker, " onto its platform at Purdue University in West Lafayette. The 5, 400-pound, 18-foot bronze statue, to be located between the intercollegiate athletic facility and the Mollenkopf Athletic Center, was created by sculptor Jon Hair of Cornelius, N.C., and was commissioned by an anonymous donor who wanted to present Purdue with a statue of the world's largest boilermaker. University officials researched several old photographs and newspaper articles to ensure the statue would accurately depict a 19th century boilermaker. The statue will be dedicated Nov. 4 to celebrate the completion of the phase one renovation of Ross-Ade Stadium. (Purdue News Service photo/Suzie Coles)
