Folk Art in the Archives

I would guess that every archives has material like this — objects created out of affection or respect in a non-official capacity. These two paintings on etched wood — recently re-discovered here at Mudd — were created by Stanislaus Korneski, a member of the drafting section of the grounds and buildings department. They were given to Ed Edenfield, another University employee, as a gift, who then sent them to the archives in 1995. Resemblances are striking, I think.
