Thank you for the details of this feature article. Rick Nelson has given us a beautifully faceted portrait of Walter Huchthausen, one of the "Monuments Men" and an important contributor to the University and the Twin Cities. He was the only American killed -- at the age of 40 -- as he worked with the MFAA.

I might add that my grandfather "Ralph W. Hammett" born in Mankato and died in Rochester was another Monument Man from Minnesota. Ralph W. Hammett was an Architect from the U of M. Thank you for this story too.
