Beulah Bettersworth’s mural “White Gold in the Delta” was completed in 1939 for the Indianola post office under the auspices of the Treasury Section of Fine Arts. Bettersworth, who also completed a mural for the Columbus, Mississippi post office, was selected as a replacement for the commission awarded to Walter Anderson after his health prevented his ability to execute the Indianola mural.
