November 4 Birthday: James Earle Fraser: THE BUFFALO NICKEL

James Earle Fraser, sculptor
Nov. 4, 1876-Oct. 11, 1953


The Buffalo Nickel by Taylor Morrison (Houghton Mifflin, 2002)

This is the story of Fraser’s life and work, and in particular, his design of the nickel depicting a buffalo on one side and a Plains Indian chief on the other. Fascinating.
