    Alonzo Victor Lewis (1886-1946) came to Seattle in 1920 after graduating from the Art Institute of Chicago. He was primarily known for his sculpture, but was also an excellent painter. He taught sculpture at the University of Washington, and was named Washington Sculptor Laureate by the State Legislature. In 1923, Lewis created a furor in the art world when his oil painting of Jack Dempsey was hung amid landscapes at the Kansas City Art Institute. Among his best-known works are the initially controversial "The Doughboy" at the Seattle Center, and "Victory Memorial" on the state capitol grounds at Olympia. less
