MacNeil, an accomplished medallist, designed this award medal for the Pan American Exposition, a world's fair held in Buffalo, New York, in 1901. Manufactured by Gorham, this medal demonstrates MacNeil’s ongoing interest in American Indian themes. The obverse features Liberty walking alongside a bison; the reverse depicts two native Americans, one representing South America (at left, cross legged) and the other depicting North America (at right, seated) sharing a peace pipe to symbolize Pan-American friendship.
