The iBerkshires.com reports a sculptor who has immortalized the likes of Shaquille O'Neal, Yogi Berra and Pope John Paul II in bronze has been selected to cast Adams' most celebrated figure: Susan B. Anthony.

The Adams Suffrage Centennial Celebration committee has selected award-winning sculptor Brian Hanlon to create the life-size bronze of Anthony and a smaller figure of her as a child.

Committee member William Kolis told the Selectmen on Wednesday that the committee received interest from 13 sculptors but voted to recommend the New Jersey-based sculptor to create the proposed statute.
