    Thank you for the time and effort spent to document and photograph these murals. Paul Hull Julian (born Paul Hull Husted) was my husband’s first cousin, once removed, on his father’s side of the family. Like Paul Julian, my father was a set painter in his early years and he applied to attend Chouinard School of Art, where Julian attended, but my father entered the military instead. Our family has a deep appreciation for the arts and special projects like the WPA. Your time and effort has contributed greatly to our sense of family pride!
