hiding in plain sight #1

this is Newbery medalist & MacArthur fellow Virginia Hamilton (1934-2002) in my office on the 12th floor of the Kent State University Libraries in the mid-'80s.

but what interests me today are those shelves that I wd see from my desk everyday. there is an Ira Joel Haber drawing which is now in my bedroom. & that exquisite Henry Halem piece which is also in my bedroom. next shelf down is the portrait of Mom which Dad took to war. it's now in the guest room. beside it is a memento which the American Film Institute gave to special donors. it's in the guest bathroom. & on the next shelf is a James Dean postcard which I think was sent by Edward Field.
