In 1930, my mother was an art major at Meredith College in Raleigh and was part of the Oak Leaves yearbook staff. She drew these art deco illustrations to designate the various sections of the yearbook. I framed them and have enjoyed their accent in my home. They are a great sentimental reminder of her. My mom, Dorothy Taylor Cutler, died in 2010 at age 99.
