Everett Oil Painting Donation

William Blackwell and his dog Happy 
Len G. Everett
Oil on canvas
Monmouth College is the recipient of a generous gift of a Len G. Everett oil painting.  

Mr. Ralph Glaser, Jr., of Florida donated this paining to Monmouth College and it is temporarily on display in Gallery 203 on the upper-level of Hewes Library, and later will find a home on the wall outside the gallery.

The painting, titled "William Blackwell and his dog Happy" is the portrait of a close personal friend of the artist, Len G. Everett, and the artist’s parents.  Mr. Blackwell attended the University of South Carolina and earned a Bachelor of Laws Degree, passing the bar and admitted to the practice of law in 1945.  He was active in many professional and social activities in southern Florida, and included Sir George Roberts, the first President of the Bahamian Senate, and Lady Roberts, among his friends.
