Subject:        Shakespeare Monuments

I am trying to find out as much as possible about grand Shakespeare
monuments - those material tributes erected, mainly after the mid-19th
century, in public places or parks to commemorate heroes of the mind as
well as royalty or war heroes, though without the approval of some of
those who remembered Sonnet 55. I'm aware of such Shakespeare memorials
in Stratford-upon-Avon (Gower monument), London (Leicester Square), New
York (Central Park), St. Louis, Chicago, Sydney (facing the State
Library), Paris, and Weimar (Germany, facing the garden house of
Goethe). Would someone out there know of any others? Any piece of
information (on or off list) would be greatly appreciated.
