Title Basket of Chips, introduction ix
Description Introduction On October 16, 1940, James Taylor Harwood's long and interesting life and career came to an end. The following trib- ute was published in the Sdt Lake Tribune later the same day: James T. Harwood, dean of Utah painters, loved by hundreds of artists both old and young, died today at 1:30 P.M.

He was a patient, loving teacher who gave the searching young artist an incentive to work hard for perfection in spirit, mood, live composition, design and the special touch that makes a painting a real work of art.

Each one of these artists and many more found a high rung on the ladder of accomplishment.

And since a great many of these students became teachers themselves, both in Utah and else- 1 Alice Merrill Horne, Devotees ma?
