Indexer Notes

Gaylord Du Bois script credit as per Gaylord Du Bois's Account Books Sorted by Title compiled from the original account books by Randall W. Scott (1984) - Page 189; and Jerry Bails' Who's Who. Gaylord Du Bois script identification by David Porta, June 2014.

Art attribution by Steinar Ådland who notes the following Marsh tendencies:
* General lack of movement in faces and figures
* Open, sleepy landscapes
* Clouds as small black scribbles
* Distinctive facial characteristics: angular eyebrows, cheekbones downwards in the wrong direction on men, many long thin lines in facial shading, protruding lower faces, and general frequent "angry" expressions

Credit confirmed in the reprint.
