Kudos to Paul Higee for bringing a hidden story undergirthing the Crazy Horse Memorial to light (SD Magazine, Nov-Dec 2021). Dorothy Comstock Ziolkowski's support of the memorial her husband, Korczak Ziolkowski, sculpted has been ignored by the State's historians. That should be rectified. Thanks to historian Ruth A Karlen of Rapid City, the support and financial contribution by Dorothy Ziolkowski should be formally acknowledged.
