Four bronze relief panels above the Dearborn Street doors which depict the travels of Marquette and Joliet, and the hardships of Marquette's second visit to Chicago are by Hermon Atkins MacNeil. The decorative treatment of the bronze revolving doors and the double doors including the panther heads on the push plates, is the work of Edward Kemeys. Kemeys also executed the bronze plaques over each elevator door in the lobby. These contain busts of important Indian leaders of the Mississippi Valley and leading early explorers. Two of the busts, those of Marquette and Joliet, are not by Kemeys; they are the work of Amy Aldis Bradley.
