I skipped a few words when transcribing the article. Please substitute the following corrected paragraph in the discussion about the newspaper clipping regarding "Arkansan's Famous Painting".
The artist was born near Clarendon on the White River and as little Martha Jane Thweatt, she loved to draw figures on the pages of her blue-back spelling book. Her talent was apparent even then and when the first opportunity arose she went to Nashville, Tenn., to study and later to Boston at the Academy of Fine Arts under Carlson and Duglars. Her training continued in Munich and later in Paris under Bougereau and Fleuret.
