He created the figures for both the Sophie and Simon Gumbel Memorial Fountains at The St. Charles Avenue entrance to Audubon Park (1918), as well as those for the Sara Lavinia Hyams Fountain and Wading Pool at the Carousel Gardens entrance in City Park (1921). An identical Hyams wading pool is hidden in plain sight near the Magazine Street entrance to the Audbon Zoo; both it and the one at City Park were cast by the Roman Bronze Works in New York. < /i >
