Original sketches and ephemera from the beloved Utah artist, Jack Sears (1875-1969). Sears trained under J.T. Harwood and was a colleague and friend of Mahonri Young, who was a cartoonist for the Deseret News and S.L. Tribune and a longtime instructor in the University of Utah's art department. Sears is probably best known for illustrating the classic (at least in Mormon Country) children's book 'Thunder Cave.'.
