Deep River Roll of HonorColumbia, painted by C.D. Batchelor, Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist, was dedicated by Gov. Raymond Baldwin in Nov. 1943 on the library grounds. By 1969 weather-time had caused decay in the wooden frame. A committee was formed to relocate and reset Columbia. The site known as Library Park was changed to Veterans Memorial Park. In 1970 the movement and resetting, in brick, was completed.
