The Great Chicago Statue Quiz #1

This blog originated on the Tribune‘s ChicagoNow platform in 2009.  One of the features was a quiz on Chicago’s statues.  When I moved to WBEZ in 2011, I substituted a Chicago Trivia Quiz during Tony Sarabia’s “Morning Show” broadcast, and stopped doing the statues on the blog.

Public monuments have been in the news recently, so now is an appropriate time to look at some of the people honored with statues in and around Chicago.  No prizes, just a little fun!
