Scholars Recommend Quotes for Eisenhower Memorial

KSAL StaffJune 5, 2013

The commission that is planning a memorial to honor President Dwight D. Eisenhower in Washington plans to unveil a series of quotations that may be inscribed in the monument.

The Eisenhower Memorial Commission is hosting a public forum Wednesday evening in Washington. A committee of scholars and Eisenhower experts will discuss their recommendations for which of Ike’s words should be included in the memorial.

The public forum comes after a controversy arose over an inscription in the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial – after it was already built in Washington. In that case, a paraphrased and abbreviated quotation will be removed from the monument after critics complained it was not accurate.

Eisenhower Memorial planners said they wanted to hear public input before any inscriptions are carved in stone.
