Bust of Tom L. Johnson
composition
signed and dated 1911 on right side
marked Copyright right side 
ht. 23, wd. 20, dp. 12 in. 

Tom L. Johnson served as the Mayor of Cleveland, Ohio from 1901 to 1909, and was a noted American Progressive. He was elected on the basis of his "home rule, 3-cent fare, and just taxation" campaign, and led many reforms that took place in city hall during his three terms. He was defeated in the 1909 mayoral race by Herman C. Baehr, and passed away in 1911. Johnson is buried in Greenwood Cemetery in Brooklyn, New York. 

Max Kalish studied at the Cleveland Institute of Art and the National Academy of Design. He was a frequent exhibitor at the Cleveland Museum of Art's May Show where he was known for his sculptures of industrial workmen. In addition to this bust, Kalish also sculpted other political figures including a likeness of Abraham Lincoln that stands on the Cleveland mall downtown. The Cleveland Plain Dealer featured this bust of Johnson in their July 12, 1911 issue praising him for his "interpretation of the intensely human human side of Cleveland's famous mayor."
