The memorial was installed in 1996, therefore Lisa Hunter- Galvin’s name as the 2015 winner would not be listed. We have a few images of the Boston Marathon memorial on our Public Art Boston website. But to get images of each of the individuals you mentioned inscribed on the seal, required I go out and specific take pictures for your inquiry. The pictures are below.

Captain Robert Brown came from Australia as the Captain of the whaling ship “Glory” while he was here he married a Maori Princess called Te wharerimu, from the Ngai Tahu tribe.  When she was married to Brown she was baptised and called Martha Te Wharerimu.  She was born at Ruapuke Island, which is in Stewart Island.  When they married they moved to Codfish Island and lived there, and Captain Robert Brown is in the history books as the founder of that island.  They had five children all born on Codfish Island and Captain Brown was drowned at sea about 1844, his wife Martha is buried with her son Thomas at the Riverton Cemetery.   Pictured above Jane Brown (Mrs Edwin Palmer)
