Description Ruminations of Life md Art Her mother lived to see her well on her way in her career and to have a big faith in her carrying on our dreams. She is now producing and selling a line of artistic gift cards, and also going on with her writing, and other art work. She received most of her art training from me and her field of work is in imaginative design based on realistic forms. She is in partnership with a splendid, very talented young woman whom she feels that her mother must have sent to her in some way. Lois Atkins and she are now buying a little house in the Berkeley hills, and work under the name of Harwood Atkins Company. Ruth is gradually becoming more widely known and to her the future gives great promise.' She has written the most beauti- ful themes to her mother and these are the most precious things to me of anything I possess. June Rose, our Paris production, combines the Richards with a very, very tiny bit of the Harwood. She is a combination of the aunts and grandmother Richards and a good amount of her mother. She is the best school student we have, although out- side of school she does not study as much as the boys. As a collector, she is not surpassed by any on either side of the family. It began at a very early age, in the way of collect- ing dolls, toys, bits of ornament, broken or whole, cloth, colored paper, chalk, pencils or anything detached that could be heaped in her lap. She would sit for an hour holding with her two arms all her lap could contain. This she did at two years old. At six or seven the Hawthorne School was built across the road from us. All the broken plaster casts that were discarded she carted over to our place until the whole yard was littered with them. It took me years to get rid of them as they were tucked away in all conceivable places.' co11 1 For information on Ruth Ha rwood see Ruth Harwood Collecti ections Department, University of Utah Library, Salt Lake City. on, Special 2 June's passion for collecting continued into adulthood as she possessed a good deal of Harwood family material, including a number of her father's paintings. 121
