Brian Schweitzer, Jack Weaver, and Society Director Richard Sims
celebrate the 50th anniversary of the installation of Weaver's
sculpture of Charlie Russell in Statuary Hall in the nation's capitol.
The statue behind the three is an exact and the only other cast of
Weaver's sculpture of Russell. Weaver was curator at the Montana
Historical Society in the 1950s and 1960s and said he was surprised
that the Society and the state had invited him back for the
celebration. Weaver now lives in British Columbia and in an
internationally known sculptor. Each state is allowed only two people
in Statuary Hall, and Montana's other inductee is Jeannette Rankin.
