Photograph was edited for publication purposes Henry Van Wolf, born in Bavaria in 1898, was a prominent sculptor in the San Fernando Valley. Moving to the San Fernando Valley in 1944, Van Wolf sculpted many statues and busts on display throughout the Los Angeles and elsewhere in the United States. He founded the Valley Artists Guild, also known as VAG in 1948. Van Wolf died in 1982.; Robert Schuller was born in Iowa in 1926. He was a California clergyman who started his ministry by preaching in a drive-in movie theater and transformed it into an empire, building the landmark megachurch the Crystal Cathedral, writing best sellers, and, through television, exhorting millions to believe in themselves. He died in 2015. Photograph caption dated November 28, 1964 reads "'The Peace on Earth Sculptured Group' by Henry Van Wolf, left, was unveiled Tuesday with the unveiling of the Tower of Hope, an eighteen story community structure in Garden Grove. With Wolf is the Rev. Robert Schuller, pastor of the Garden Grove Community Church." The church was renamed Crystal Cathedral Ministries after the Crystal Cathedral was built in 1981.
