Aloe and made reality by his wife Edith Aloe in 1940.Amidst all the projects and causes to which he was dedicated, their grandson Kenneth Aloe Marshall, held great personal devotion to the maintenance and improvement of the Aloe Plaza in downtown St. Louis. throughout his lifetime.The plaza is dominated by the Carl Milles fountain The Meeting of the Waters. The fountain represents the coming together of the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers alongside 17 mythical creatures standing for tributaries.
