A former mayor is walking tall downtown in Boston, MA.
This 10-foot bronze statue depicts one of Boston's most influential mayors, Kevin Hagan White, also the longest-serving mayor 1968 to 1984. Bolivian sculptor Pablo Eduardo's work shows White walking away from City Hall, right foot forward, tie wrinkled, and a jacket thrown over his left shoulder.
Footsteps leading up to the statue are imprinted in the ground and quotes from each of White's four inaugural speeches (1968, 1972, 1976, 1980) are engraved in stonework nearby.
The statue which was dedicated in November 2006 is in downtown Boston along Congress St at Faneuil Hall. The site was selected as the most suitable since without Mayor WHite's persistence, Faneuil Hall might never have been erected.
White died in January 2012.
