amazing people

There's a folder of snapshots of that Carnegie mural while it was being painted, ca. 1905-1908, in Alexander's papers at the Archives. You can look at them here: http://aaa.si.edu/collectionsonline/alexjohn/container313657.htm

thanks for your interesting article. An English proverb says: "A man without a mustache is like a cup of tea without sugar". I like J. W. Alexanders work, my favorite is "Sunlight".

Man what a mustache! I don't see too many people today who can wear a mustache like this one. You're right it will probably hunt my dreams as well.
