  • The sculptress and a paper mill by Bob Bowman
    We recently learned that Texas historian Light Cummings is writing a book about sculptress Allie Tennant of Dallas, who has an unusual link with East Texas. When the first paper mill to make newsprint from southern pine trees was built near Lufkin in the 1930s, Tennant was commissioned to develop a plaque bearing the likenesses of Charles Holmes Herty and Francis Patrick Garvan, who developed a method for separating the pine resin from the tree’s pulp...

  • Subject: Old, Texas Cinemas
    I am an art teacher in the Dallas, Texas area. Last year I found your incredible website and used it for researching a project I designed for my students on old, Texas cinemas. The results of my 8th grade studio art project was recently featured in the professional art educator magazine, "School Arts" (April 2012). I write a blog about art and my post last week mentioned your fabulous website in conjunction with the information about my art project. I thought you'd like to know that I spoke so highly of your site. Please feel free to go to my blog (www.artteachtravel.com) and read the entry posted on April 8 called "Memories as Catalyst". Most sincerely, Anita Horton, April 13, 2012
