    Hi Friends at the LND,
    I am the daughter of WPA muralist Richard V. Correll (you have material on him here on your site) and I am also an alum of GWHS. My father was a close colleague of Arnautoff (along with Emmy Lou Packard and other former WPA muralists who were members of the Graphic Arts Workshop in SF in post war years.) I have written to several artists and other alums I know and forwarded the GWHS Alumni Assn. link to them, but I am anxious to be of more help. Please feel free to contact me if there is anything more I can do. (I live in Oakland.) I have sent the same offer to the Alumni Assn.
    Thank you very much,

    Thanks Leslie
    We would welcome you writing a letter to the SF school board members and perhaps also a letter to the SF Chronicle in response to day’s coverage. That would be fantastic!
