Noah Webster - Faces #28

West Hartford, CT USA

Noah Webster was born in the West Division of Hartford, Connecticut (now West Hartford) in 1758. He was a lexicographer and authored "A Compendious Dictionary of the English Language". It was published in 1806 and was the first truly American dictionary. It has helped millions of people to "comprehend" the meaning of English words. He was also a teacher, editor and author. This statue was sculpted by Boston born sculptor Sculptor Korczak Ziolkowski who moved to West Hartford. If you are interested, there is a story to the sculpting of this statue. The statue is in front of the Noah Webster Library in West Hartford Center.

The uplight is a bit creepy, like holding a flashlight under your chin when telling Ghost Stories! Cool shot, Frank!

Lovely to see the sculpture and read about this notable gentleman when many of us own or have seen a Webster Dictionary, Frank!

This is the Webster in Webster's Dictionary then!? How interesting. Thank you for this. And for the lovely rather imposing image. V
