Just outside of Keystone, South Dakota, we saw Mount Rushmore.
The man who created the monument? Gutzon Borglum:
The sculptor was born to Danish immigrants in frontier Idaho in 1867. His full birth name was John Gutzon de la Mothe Borglum.
Some sources say that Gutzon is Danish for “good son,” though I don’t know if this is true.
Gutzon and his second wife Mary had two children: Lincoln, named for Abraham Lincoln, and Mary Ellis, aka “Mel” (reminds me of Maginel).

Here are some of the names I’ll be talking about:
I’ll come back and add links as the posts are published. Hope you enjoy!
