Historical

     When Volz researched the founder of Arlington Heights, he discovered there were only two known photographs of William Dunton. And these were about 35 years apart! Volz took artistic license to sculpt a composite.

     For clothes and hairstyle of the period, a historian was consulted. She also turned up an original map by Dunton. This became the document in the statue's left hand.
