the fair. That led them to the Handbook of Texas Online article on Flintoff,
where Linderman found that Flintoff had painted views of Houston, In-
dianola, Matagorda, and Corpus Christi during that trip.
McGloin e-mailed several Texas history experts in an effort to track
down the painting, which she finally found, along with several others, in
the possession of Jean Salvado of East Brighton, Australia. Ms. Salvado
said the paintings were gifts from her grandfather, who had apparently
gotten them from the artist, who died in 1891. Through the efforts of Cor-
pus Christi Public Library's Herb Canales and others, such as the Coastal
Bend Community Foundation, the Corpus Christi Museum was able to
raise the funds necessary to purchase the watercolor. Those attending the
opening of the new permanent exhibit on the history of the city at the
Corpus Christi Museum last month were able to toast the historic treasure,
now back at home where it belongs. Museum director Rick Stryker says
that "the greatest service that this new exhibit provides is access to the pre-
1926 history of Corpus Christi as a small town. The pace of growth of the
second 75 years is what people assumed was true of the first 75 years."
