Benton's comments in Fath read: Shortly after I finished painting the mural in the Truman Library at Independence, Mo, (that was in 1961) I tried, at the request of some of the president's admirers, to make a portrait of him. I failed. The reason - there were too many people around him, secretaries, politicians and would be cronies who wanted me to make him look like God- maybe Clark Gable - anyhow some kind of beauty. The President sensed the kind of predicament this put me in and let me 'off the hook.' Later on, when he was eighty-six years old, I went to visit him and somehow we got to joking about my failure with his portrait, and why I had failed which he understood perfectly. Looking at his old face while we talked, I found it wonderfully interesting and I said 'You know, Mr. President, we can try that business again.' He said, 'Why not?' I made some drawings of him and later a portrait which, this time, did not fail. The litho is from one of the drawings.

Benton's comments in Fath read: I have an overgrown crony in Kansas City named Dutt who is a football fan with a box at the Kansas City football stadium. He is six foot seven inches tall and therefore a real matching companion. One October afternoon he took me to see the Kansas City Chiefs play. I had never seen a 'pro' football game and I was fascinated with the spectacle and with the game itself. Using Dutts influence (he has a lot of that in K.C.) I got permission to attend the Chiefs practice sessions where I could get a close-up view of football actions. I made sketches there and from there a sculpture in bronze. The litho was made from the sculpture. P.S. I am five foot three inches. Image measures 13 x 19.75 on a 18.5 x 25 inch sheet with an overall frame size of 21 x 27.75 inches.

In addition to farming, carpentry, fishing, and the thousand and one odd jobs which everybody does who lives in Chilmark, Gale plays the guitar and sings the songs of the whalers and old-time fishermen of the Island. Emily also sings them. She is learning the piano as well but under protest. She'd rather sing with Gale.
