Marcus Daly Statue, 1904-5

Marcus Daly (1841-1900) was born in Derrylea, Ireland. In 1876, he arrived in Butte, Montana, where he developed the Anaconda Mine into the copper-smelting headquarters of the world. The Marcus Daly Memorial Association commissioned the monument. Saint-Gaudens was assisted in this project by Elsie Ward and Henry Hering. The monument was unveiled in 1906 and was originally situated in front of the Post Office in Butte, but was moved in 1941 to the campus of the Montana College of Mineral Science and Technology.
