Description A New Life Appeal to the Great Spirit (oil), 1935 Courtesy Permanent Collection, Utah Museum of Fine Arts, University of Utah devote my full time to my family, and to my painting? "My own has come to me" proves ever more true. 18 The greatest financial benefit received by artists during the 1930s was federal aid in response to the Depression. The Utah sub-chairman was Helen Sheets, and in 1934 she announced the assignment of ten projects to different Utah artists. Among those involved one way or another in the visual arts pro- grams of first the Federal Emergency Relief Administration (FERA), under Elzy J. Bird, and later the Works Projects Administration (WPA) were Carlos Ander- son, Bird, Gordon Cope, Edwin Evans, Lynn Fausett, Calvin and Irene Fletcher, J. T. Harwood, Ranch Kimball, Millard Malin, Henri Moser, William J. Parkin- son, Caroline Parry, Henry Rasmussen, Lee Greene Richards, Howell Rosenbaum, W. H. Shirtliff, Paul Smith, Everett Thorpe, and Florence Ware. Among the original ten assigned artists and projects named in 1934 was J. T. Harwood. Two gallery pictures of early Utah life resulted from this assignment - Depnr- ture of the Red Man and the Appeal to the Great Spirit painted by Harwood and assisted by Elzy (Bill) J. Bird. Both are located in the Olpin Union Build- ing Ballroom, University of Utah. Olpin, Dictionnry, 279-80. Another major financial plus for Harwood during this same general period was the 1932 sale of the "Old Brigham Young Farm Collection" to West High School (see Part Five, note 7) and the much larger Brigham Young University purchase of "The James T. Harwood Collection" in 1937 (see Part Six, note 19). In addition there were sales through the "TEENSIE, TINY TOKENS OF UTAH PIC- TURES FOR TOURISTS . . . . At number 25 West, next door to Morris' in Park's little shop, we have 50 little pictures to be picked up by tourists or sold as gifts, all suitable for a tiny apartment, and at reasonable prices. Look for the names Lura Redd, Hilma Mole, Paul Smith, Howell Rosenbaum, and the well known Richards, Moser, Wright, Harwood, Teasdale [Teasdel), Ware, the Fletchers, Campbell and others." Horne, Art Strands (July, 1932), 14. 1X
