Abstract

"City" piece on a 7-foot statue of Portland's alleged founder George Cleeve. In October, the Portland City Council agreed to accept and erect the statue at the end of the Maine State Pier but had to reconsider that decision in January after allegations surfaced that Cleeve owned a slave. The statue was a gift to the city from the local George Cleeve Association, and was paid for by Milwaukee, Wis., historian and author John Brooks Threlfall. With details about the controversy.
