For the World's Columbian Exposition at Chicago in 1893, Proctor made thirty-seven life-size sculptures of animals and other figures as decoration for the bridges at the fairground. The small models, such as the Moose, were later cast in bronze. At the fair Proctor also met Buffalo Bill whose Wild West exposition was performing there.
