21 1967.0034 Mural "In Memorium" This painting is dated after Armistice Day and the background is France. In this painting Peace is the central figure with the Sword of the Allies upon her lap. The Allies are clustered about Peace at the rear and at the left with their flags furled and their attitude that of obedience to order. America is represented on the right with the flag flying and soldiers advancing because America was only temporarily suspending action and is ready to respond to the urgency of war at a moments notice to go on to Berlin. The mother heart of America resists this, trying to detain the soldiers from continuing the war. In the lower right corner the chief sufferers of all wars, The Family, is shown, the little lad assuring his mother of his willingness to defend the family. On the extreme left the Iowa soldiers in action are shown in the conflict, with death mowing them down. The American Soldier was under arms as an enemy to the Central Powers until the Treaty of Peace between Germany and the United States in 1921." Quote comes from 1927 Bulletin of ISTC, The Library (72.54.2). Color: ML
22 1967.0035 Mural "Education" - This painting has three allegorical figures on the portico of the Temple of Knowledge: Knowledge in the center, teaching the world the truth essential to civilization; Fortune at the left, the result of being well educated; Time at the right, the character that is always required in obtaining educationand the one who removes from the temple of knowledge the incompetent and heedless. The Mother in the foreground, as the first teacher of the Child, is giving him instruction. The child is the sole object of the efforts of Education. What Education involves is indicated by the Greek Civilization represented by Homer seated with his musical instruments by Fortune; the Roman and the Romance Civilizations represented by Virgil and Dante standing near Time. Law, as an important part of education, is represented by Justinian and Napoleon in the background, and Shakespeare in front of them represents Literature. In the background, and sitting in conference, are representatives of Science, Columbus and the Greek philosphers, deciding the actual present daycontribution of science that should be studied by scholars."
