Among the photos, letters, old books, diplomas, family memorabilia I found two cards that my mother designed in the 1930's.
My mom was an artist and went to Massachusetts College of Art. The Museum School. She graduated in the 30's and one of her first jobs was for a card studio in Boston. She said she hated the job. I always thought it was very romantic, but the deadlines, horrible pay and the conformity to having to draw what 'they' wanted was enough to make her loath it. Here are her two remaining cards. The first a Christmas Card.
