Statue / monument of James Madison in Washington DC by Sculptor Walter K. Hancock  Subject: James Madison
 Year: 1980
 Sculptor: Walter K. Hancock
 Location: Capitol Hill
( Independence Avenue & First )

James Madison (1751 - 1836) was the fourth President of the United States. The Madison Building of the Library of Congress serves as his official memorial. It was deemed fitting to honor him thus, since he was the first to propose a library for Congress by submitting a list of useful books to the Continental Congress in 1787. He was himself a man of letters who was actively involved in the writing of both the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

He is depicted as a young man in his thirties, holding in his right hand volume 83 of the Encyclopédie Méthodique, which was published in Paris between 1782 and 1832.
