Biography Leonard Jungwirth
Leonard D. Jungwirth (1903-1963)
He was first of all a creator of monuments. He worked in stone, ceramic, metal, and wood, but wood was his favored medium. It was often said that he could "think in wood". The Minnesota granite 12-ton statue of Father Gabriel Richard, now in Gabriel Richard Park, is near the bridge to Belle Isle since 1940. The 10 foot ceramic statue of The Spartan (Sparty) has graced the MSU campus since 1943. He also completed numerous commissions for public buildings and churches in Detroit, East Lansing (St. John Student Chapel and St. Thomas Aquinas Church) and Detroit's suburbs.
Leonard was a self-effacing husband, father of two daughters Ales
