Linda McNair Cohen
Class of 1968
Notes
has a new book co-authored with her late friend and mentor Virginia Pounds Brown, that was published this spring. She will always credit Maryville College with teaching her how to conduct and organize research. "There was indeed something special about "special studies" that has stayed with me for almost fifty years!" The book has been published in paperback and eBook by NewSouth Books. Drawing by Stealth: John Trumbull and the Creek Indians is a brief account of the events in 1790 when a party of Creek Indians went to New York to meet with President George Washington and by chance had their images sketched by the President's portrait artist John Trumbull. In their research the authors discovered and corrected a mistaken theory that one of the images is that of Alexander McGillivray, the powerful Creek leader who made his home in the area that is present-day Wetumpka, Alabama. www.newsouthbooks.com/drawingbystealth <http://www.newsouthbooks.com/drawingbystealth>
