Book Description Macaulay Company, 1930. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. Macaulay Co., NY, 1930. First Edition. Blue cloth with red/white illustration. No ownership marks. Binding tight. Spine faded. Corners flat. Edgar Holger Cahill (1887 ¿ 1960) was an American curator, writer, and arts administrator who served as the National Director of the WPA¿s Federal Art Project during the Great Depression. Under his leadership art centers were established in over 100 towns and cities, murals drawing upon the geographical environment were painted in post offices throughout the country, an index of American design was produced, and the program assisted over 5000 artists to make art without restriction to content or subject matter. An entire generation of artists was nurtured, their work exhibited, and an expanded public for art was created. Frederick Townsend Ward (1831 ¿ 1862) was an American sailor and soldier of fortune known for his military service in Imperial China during the Taiping Rebellion. Ward became a champion for the concept of training Chinese in Western military tactics and arming them with the best available weaponry and after his untimely death, no other commander could quite repeat his success. Ward's decision to turn to local Chinese forces would ensure his place in history, and help to end the Taiping rebellion.
