Misspelling On 9/11 Memorial

Architectural plans:  check.  City permits:  check.  Stone mason to build the memorial:  check.  Ceremony to commemorate the 10th year since September 11th:  check.  Spell-check for names listed on the memorial wall –

Seems that a name of one of the 9/11 victims has made it to marble with an incorrect spelling.

The victim, Jeffrey Schreier, was an employee at Cantor Fitzgerald, a company that lost 658 people that day. When Mr. Schreier’s name was transcribed for the memorial, two letters were transposed, making his first name read “Jeffery” on the bronze parapets, said the spokesman, Michael Frazier.

As expected in such a situation, memorial organizers are apologetic.

“We are extremely sorry for the pain this mistake has caused Jeffrey’s family,” Mr. Frazier said in an e-mail. “As soon as we found out about this error, we began working on how to make it right, and we’re engaged with our fabricators, contractors and the architect to do so.”
