John Boland

John Boland, a respected Rapid City business owner, became interested in the Mount Rushmore project through Doane Robinson in 1925. He was very active in raising funds and served as president of the Mount Rushmore Memorial Commission. Mr. Boland kept the Rushmore project from running up bills it could not pay. Trustworthy and hard working, he was the one that had to handle the unpaid creditors until the treasury was replenished.
