This freestanding bronze statue of a cloaked woman in Forest Lawn Cemetery, 1411 Delaware Avenue in Buffalo, New York, was designed by Philadelphia sculptor Harriet Whitney Frishmuth and titled “Aspiration.” It commemorates iron mogul William A. Rogers (1851-1946) and his wife, Eleanor Silliman Rogers, a trustee of Buffalo General Hospital. This statue is one of three in existence.
