Memory Bank: Carving a monument at Crown Hill

Memory Bank SteeleRembrandt “Brandt” Theodore Steele (1870-1965), son of Indiana artist T.C. Steele, worked for the H. Lieber Co., where he drafted and designed furniture, frames and mirrors and did some stone carving. In this photo—believed to have been taken in 1910—Steele is shown working on the Lieber monument at Crown Hill Cemetery. Steele studied architecture and decorative arts in France and Germany and returned to Indianapolis to open Brandt Steele Pottery and was an instructor at the John Herron Art Institute.
