The private history of a public monument told by Arthur Calder-Marshall
' The following Gentlemen, feeling that no Monument worthy of his name and services has yet been raised to his memory, have formed themselves into a Committee for the purpose of erecting a COLOSSAL BRONZE STATUE of DR. JENNER by William Calder-Marshall , A.R.A., to be placed in a public situation in London ...

But, as Arthur Calder-Marshall reveals, the private history of that public monumeot was curious and complicated.
