Alexander Phimister Proctor was raised on the frontier near Denver. His affinity for the history of the American West and the fate of American wildlife translated into an interest in sculpture and led to a lengthy sojourn in Paris, studying art. Large public commissions in Denver and elsewhere followed his return to the States, making Proctor perhaps the best known American sculptor of his time. Pony Express, commissioned in 1930, is a heroic bronze medallion, commemorating the lone riders who moved the mail in the days before the telegraph and railroad tamed the West.
