"Subsequent material in this volume chronicles the pioneering work accomplished at the Colony from 1910, during World War II, and finally through the end of the twentieth, century, when the community began to attract the attention of public and charitable endowments. Comprehensive appendixes include transcriptions of interviews with Barbara Kolb, Russell Oberlin, Howard Shanet, and many other notable associates of the Colony. These interviews reveal some of the community's most endearing characteristics and document the profound importance of place and community in the creative process."--Jacket.
The MacDowell Colony is a magnificent place with an intriguing history. It's about time there was a book on it, and I am glad Bridget Falconer-Salkeld has now filled that void. -- Phillip Ramey,
