Item
?

Item’s are ‘child’ level descriptions to ‘parent’ objects, (e.g. one page of a whole book).

  • Allen Eaton was the Russell Sage Foundation's representative to the Southern Appalachian region. His involvement with the Southern Highland Handicraft Guild from its earliest days onward led to close friendships with many Guild members and area craftspeople. Each December, Eaton sent out an informative summary letter about his year. This copy was probably sent to Clementine Douglas in 1937. It gives a detailed account of his work on the Rural Arts Exhibition which took place that winter at the Department of Agriculture in Washington, D.C. The first page of this letter is missing.
