One Response to “Allyn Cox (1896 – 1982)”

  1. Bruce said

    Most of the wall murals (with curved frames) are from the Cox Corridors of the House side of the U.S. Capitol. There are three corridors: The Hall of Capitols, The Great Experiment Hall, and The Westward Expansion Corridor. Cox completed The Hall of Capitols and The Great Experiment Hall (this one just before he died) and his designs for The Westward Expansion Corridor were implemented by the studio that finished work in 1993.

    The last one, “America’s First Moon Landing, 1969” is in the Senate side of the Capitol, in the Brumidi Corridors.

    All familiar history, of course, but with one puzzling scene that I wish I could ask Mr. Cox about. In “The Constitutional Convention 1787,” what is being represented by the man barring the door? The only thing I can think of is the Fourth Amendment, protection from unreasonable search and seizure. However, that’s part of the Bill of Rights which were the 10 constitutional amendments that were approved by Congress in 1789 and finally ratified in 1791.
