S. Dillon Ripley (1913 – 2001) was the eighth Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution, serving from 1964 to 1984. In the Spring of 1967 he put a carousel on the mall.

The Carousel on the Mall is located on the southern edge of the National Mall at Jefferson Drive SW directly in front of the Smithsonian Institution Arts and Industries building. Click Here for Google Map showing the location of the Carousel on the Mall.
