Stout Hearted: George Stout and the Guardians of Art tells the story of a Winterset-born University of Iowa student who became an art conservator on the East Coast. During World War II, while in his mid 40s, George Stout was tasked with leading the Monuments Men, the special forces unit responsible for retrieving and restoring artworks stolen by the Nazis. With skill and resourcefulness, Stout guided his largely untrained team to transport some of the world’s greatest cultural treasures to safety. Stout is also credited with pioneering advancements in the field of art restoration.
