The American Institute of Mining and Metallurgical Engineers commissioned this relief to honor Charles Frederic Rand. It accompanies an award for excellence in mine administration, which was Rand’s expertise. Rand was president of the institute for a one-year term in 1913. This bronze cast is based on a larger plaster relief executed in 1924 (see 1966.51.36).
