One other thing: This is for the more wealthy members of the forum.

I got this idea from the county court house in Marshalltown, Iowa, the town where T. Nelson Downs spent most of his life. Recently, someone had a life-size statue of one of the city's founders made and placed right in front of the court house.

How about a Down's statue somewhere else on Main St., near his Vaudeville/movie theater location, a few blocks from where he lived? He could be in one of the classic poses that appears on his large poster.

Anybody with deep pockets interested?
