Bust of whom?[edit]

The article mentions "a Sullivan-designed, but unsigned, bust of Ryerson", making the reader wonder "which one?" It might be of the elder Martin Ryerson, who had recently died, or the younger one, who had the mausoleum built. IvoShandor (talk), principal author of the article (to date, anyway), didn't know, either. Anybody know that one?--Piledhigheranddeeper (talk) 17:16, 7 October 2011 (UTC)

I can't imagine a circumstance where it would be anyone but the elder Ryerson who is buried in the mausoleum. It would be rather odd for a bust of the son to appear in his father's grave. That said, the source material says "bust of Ryerson", not Ryerson, Jr., if it matters to the question. I suspect they're talking about the Ryerson who is buried at the site.IvoShandor (talk) 01:00, 8 October 2011 (UTC)
