Vandalism, Sep. 1966

The bust of Artemus Ward is covered in graffiti in this photograph from September 9, 1966. The artwork in the American Cultural Garden was a target for vandals as the neighborhoods surrounding the Cultural Gardens dealt with escalating racial tensions in the decades following World War II.
