Perhaps best known for his monumental World War II memorial at 30th Street Station in Philadelphia, Walker Hancock began his career in the 1930s with work for the WPA-era Post Office Building in Washington, D.C. He chaired the sculpture department at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, and maintained a studio in the Cape Ann area of Massachusetts for many years. He sculpted several medals -- perhaps his best known was a commission for the Society of Medalists -- but this example is rare. The award's sponsor was the Parke-Davis pharmaceutical company and it was awarded by the American Society for Experimental Pathology. The medal dates from the late 1950s, and although it still has the feel of Art Deco, the figures seem to be floating in space, characteristic of bas relief monumental sculpture of the period.
