Best Monument to Free Speech (2005)

Dalton Trumbo Fountain
University of Colorado

Dalton Trumbo was a true talent and, as a onetime member of the Communist Party who refused to rat out his fellow travelers, a true victim of a political witchhunt that burned through the University of Colorado fifty years ago. Long may his fountain stand on the Boulder campus, as a reminder that some issues are worth fighting for.
