Though he is known principally in his roles as Polish American Congress National Vice President for American Affairs, President of the Polish American Congress of Eastern Massachusetts, and Associate Dean (ret.) and Senior Lecturer in History at Northeastern University in Boston, Anthony J. Bajdek, acting in his capacity as President of the American Association of the Friends of Kosciuszko at West Point, dedicated a plaque given by the Association to the venerable Kosciuszko Mound Committee (Komitet Kopca Kosciuszki) in Krakow, Poland, on September 16, 2008. The bronze plaque, placed in proximity to the entrance of the Kosciuszko Mound Museum which is situated at the base of the Mound, commemorates establishment of a formal relationship between the two organizations, each of which is dedicated to perpetuating the inspiring story of Tadeusz Kosciuszko (1746-1817), American and Polish hero and patriot, altruist, and champion of freedom, independence, democracy, and equality.
The Kosciuszko Mound Committee has been responsible for the maintenance and preservation of the Mound, one of Poland's greatest national historical sites, since 1823.
