This memorial contains a three-dimensional representation of the U.S. Marine Corps emblem mounted on a rough-cut block of granite. A bronze plaque lists the names of Hamilton County Marines who died in World War I. In the center of the two-column list is the portrait of Corporal Merril Law Ricketts who gave his life in that war. Ricketts' father, a Cincinnati physician, commissioned this tribute from Kruthap, who was the first local female artist to create a public memorial. Created by Sarah Ayers Kruthap in 1921
