“Cotton Industry and Farming”
“In 1934 Olive Rush, under WPA/FAP, decorated the dome-shaped entrance to the biology building with a fresco. Themes are the history of the development of plant and animal life from earliest beginnings on through to more complicated life forms, with special attention given to local flora and fauna. The cotton industry and farming, which flourished at the time, are also represented.
One can hope that public interest will see that professional conservation restores the fresco to its original state. Latest decisions about restoring this fresco can be obtained at the President’s Office on campus.”
