Constitution Monument to Be Unveiled Friday

From Times Staff Reports

A monument to the U.S. Constitution will be unveiled at 10 a.m. Friday at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library.

Warren E. Burger, former chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, commissioned artist Brett Livingstone-Strong in early 1987 to design and create a monument commemorating the 200th anniversary of the Constitution's signing.

President Reagan dedicated the 8-foot monument in 1988, at Independence Hall in Philadelphia. It will be on loan from the American Monument Foundation for the next few years.

The library is at 40 Presidential Drive, near Simi Valley. Admission fees are $5 general, $3 for seniors 62 and older and free for children 15 and younger.

For more information, call (800) 410-8354.
