I spent seven years until 1957 living. Across the street from Volunteer Park. It was my playground, and the camels were always ridden as I visiting the museum. When my husband and I visited the park in 1973, we hopped on, for old times’ sake. Notice my long hair and flared pants, and Keith’s mustache…signs of the times!

Taken about 1973. I love the settling and space inside the museum.

Enclosed find a photo taken of me in the winter of 1941 – nearly 78 years ago. I’m still around and so is the Art Museum. I grew up on Capitol Hill and my friends and I were often at the Museum, especially the Saturday movies. I’m happy to support the making the icon effort.

All the best,
Daisy Beach
