Trygve Rovelstad (September 27, 1903- June 8, 1990) is well-known, but had never been done before because the committee doesn't like to select people who have died too recently. Rovelstad, who died in 1990, was an artist and sculptor known for creating the Pioneer Family Memorial along Kimball Street, the American Roll of Honor at London's St. Paul's Cathedral, and numerous World War II-era military medals. A blowup of the Rovelstad-designed Combat Infantryman's Badge is on display in the Elgin Civic Center.
