I have your letter regarding renewal of
my membership in the Texas Historical
Foundation. My check is enclosed and I
only wish I could make it much more.
The work being done by the Foundation
in the preservation of our Texas heritage is
certainly to be commended. I admire it
very much and I only wish I could be a
much bigger part of it but at 95 one can
hardly do the things he once did.
I do wish more attention could be directed
toward the preservation of our past
on canvas. Texas has so very much to be
proud of that could only be brought out on
in Works of Art
canvas. For some years of my business life,
I worked in New York and Pennsylvania
and those states have done a tremendous
job of this. I had the distinct pleasure of
meeting and being in the home of N.C.
Wyeth before he was so well known. He
and his family have done such a splendid
job for Pennsylvania.
Just think of the many, many events of
importance that have never found their
way to the artist's canvas. Take for instance
the inauguration of the presidents
of the Republic of Texas. I could go on
and on but I am sure you have the idea.
This work could be accomplished through
the efforts of business to commission artists
to paint Texas historical pictures. A
Texas historical art gallery/museum
should be given serious consideration.
Won't you give this suggestion consideration?
