News of Alumni: Brendan O'Neill '60

Sculptor Brendan O'Neill '60 recently traveled to the Choctaw Nation Reservation in Durant, Oklahoma to install a sculpture that he created for the Choctaw Nation as a gift.

The sculpture, which now stands in the Choctaw Cultural Center, represents the bond between the Choctaw Nation and the Irish people -- a bond that dates back to 1847 when the Choctaw Nation sent money to Ireland during the potato famine.
