Description A Basket of Chips A year later, or nearly so, at our home in Utah, my wife met me at the door, her face radiant with the glad news that it had been admitted by the Salon jury. Previous to this I had felt that I was like Kipling's "The Light that Failed." " The picture was no different from what it was the year before. Why could not circumstances have reversed the events? 67 THE FAMILY COMPLETE Our fifth child, Heber James, was born on the 14th of No- vember, 1905."" We now had the required size of family. My wife was never robust, and my consideration for her was first. It was a consolation to us in a way when the drafting for the army began for the world war - our boy, Lawrence James, would have been "fodder" for that fearful butchery. We gave the name of James to our last boy, combined with Heber, the names of his grandfathers. Heber James thrived until nearly six months old, when his mother came down with typhoid and her milk supply dried up, and he had to be put on brought him the great honor of being elected an associate member of that so- ciety." Boy Cavpentevs, probably done around 1904-05, was sent to the Society of Western Artists exhibit sometime before 1908 and accepted by the Salon in 1910. Harwood Art Exhibition, 9; Horne, Devotees, 53-54; Harwood, "National Cyclopedia," 3. 66 The Light that Fded is reference to a novel by the well-known British author, Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936). Ruth Harwood wrote, "It was a great disappointment . . . for a water color of Willard Whittling was acceped that year, and not until a year afterwards, when they [the family} had returned to America, was the Adorution of the Ages exhibited" in Paris. Harwood Art Ex- hibition, 6. 67 Harwood's Adorution brought him wide acclaim at home. According to local critic and fellow painter, B. F. Larsen, in 1960 it was still "the most im- portant religious picture painted by a Utah artist." Leek, "James T. Harwood," 3; Heaton, Pioneers of Utah Art, 76. 6s H. James Harwood attended the University of Utah before work at Iowa State Agricultural University, Ames, led to a Ph.D. in organic chemistry in 1931. He lives today with his family in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
