Who was the actual designer of Charles Russell’s tombstone?

What an interesting question. I have never thought about it. If memory serves, the cross and crown emblem on the one side of the pyramid, added to the site in 1921, is the same as on the original Watchtower magazine, entitled Zion’s Watch Tower. But as far as the tombstone goes, I do not know. Anybody out there know? We’d love to hear from you.
