Graceland Cemetery: Tomb of William O. Goodman

Tomb of William O. Goodman
Graceland Cemetery ..

Architect: Howard Van Doren Shaw [1928]

Lumber magnate William Goodman (1848-1936) hired architect Howard Van Doren Shaw to design this tomb as a tribute to his playwright son Kenneth Sawyer Goodman, who died in 1918 of influenza while serving as a lieutenant at Great Lakes Naval Training Station ..
On either side of the relief carving are the words from the Song of Solomon, "Until the Day Breaks and the Shadows Flee Away."

The Goodman Theater was also a tribute to Kenneth S. Goodman, and was designed by the same architect Howard Van Doren Shaw..
