The War Memorial (1948) for the Eaton Manufacturing Corporation of Cleveland, Ohio, is an instance of its use in an interior space, where the sculpture and the list of names are to be seen at close range and the scale is necessarily small. In other instances it is used on a very large scale. Fredericks, Suzanne P. "Marshall M. Fredericks, Sculptor", Saginaw Valley State University, 2003. p. 5
