Early Years as a Fountain Designer
At 16 years old, while still a student at George K. Broomhall High School, Mountweazel won a public design competition for the Korean War Veterans of Ohio Memorial in downtown Beatosu, Ohio.
Beating 1,421 other competition submissions, her design was chosen with the fountain completed and presented to the public in June 1960.
In 2007, the Western Ohio Institute of Architects ranked the memorial No. 10 on their list of Western Ohio’s Favorite Architecture.
Of all her fountain sketches and designs, it is Mountweazel’s only known completed work.
These pictures of the memorial were taken in 2018.
