Historical Note

The Commission, formed in March 1972 under the chairmanship of Public Works Commissioner Edward J. Kozlowski, was set up to arrange and obtain funding for a restoration of the State Capitol. A major portion of the project was the cleaning, strengthening, and restoration of the plaster figure, the Genius of Connecticut, a bronze version of Randolph Rogers which stood for some years on the dome until the Hurricane of 1938 toppled it. Apparently the bronze version was donated to the Second World War's scrap salvage drive. The restoration work, carried out by Casimer Michalczyk, was completed early in 1973.
