GLORIA JOHNSON DONATES CHAPMAN PAINTING TO THE LIBRARY

This painting, "Music Lesson", by Charles S. Chapman NA, was donated to the Morristown Public Library by Gloria Scott Johnson.  I have learned so much because of this painting!  Charles himself is standing, his wife Ada at the piano, and sitting on the left is his Aunt Julia, who was at Fords Theater the night President Lincoln was shot.  Wowsa!
