O, FOR HISTORY: Monticello influences

July 1974, I visited Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello for the very first time and many things stayed with me through the next twenty years until my next visit.

Two things were highlighted in my memory:

1. The wall hangings suspended by a wire to an overhead rod

2. The front entrance hall as a museum or an introduction to Mr. Jefferson’s world.

I applied the wall hangings with current rods and kept this format for many years. It was tedious to create but aided in the use of less nails and holes in the thick plaster walls.

My front room, more like a waiting room during the private teaching hours, is an introduction to my world of Lincoln, Mother, The White House, Presidents and First Ladies, family, and photography.

My study is a grand mixture of music, theatre, writing, and more history. It’s my sanctuary.
