“Breathe soft, ye winds, Ye waves in silence rest.” Under former Governor Hugh Gregg, the commission chose the plot of ground at Hampton Beach across from the Ashworth Hotel to locate the memorial. Various designs for the Memorial were submitted and finally a design by Alice E. Cosgrove [1909-1971], a talented artist from Concord NH, was chosen. Her design was accepted unanimously after the commission members had viewed the other entries. She made a scale model which was used by a Cambridge, Massachusetts sculptor, Teodors Uzarins, to model a life-size statue in clay at the Caproni Galleries in Boston. Uzarins, working closely with Alice produced the sensitive face and feeling now immortalized in NH granite which you see today. The monument, Lady of the Sea, was completed and dedicated on Memorial Day, May 30, 1957.
