Thompson has both nourished and needled our tastes in art to a high pinnacle of esthetic delight. While so doing, she has provided us as well with a tool for practical use and comfort. Practicality might well be the hallmark of her concept of art: for in a world where escapism seems to be the natural order, she has proven to be a worthy disciple for an art that is both useful and purposeful. At almost every campus exhibition or display, one can find examples of her artistic talent and good taste as she somehow finds time to fill a multitude of requests for help in preparing posters and drawings. Her sympathetic good na- ture keeps her bending over her artist's easel long after other lights are dimmed and other offices closed because she believes art is a talent not only to be de- veloped fully but to be shared freely. To her classrooms too, Miss Thompson has brought wisdom, charm and a bit of hominess in at manner mindful of a past generation. Through its informality. her manner lends inspiration to student efforts. t To this lady, who is a native of Nashville, a product of its public schools, a graduate of Harvard University and an honorary Colonel in the A. G I. Air Force Detachment, respectfully and with a great deal of pleaure, we dedicate this book.
