Please note that the name of the artist is misprinted in Democratic Vistas: Post Offices and Public Art in the New Deal . The correct name for the artist is Ms. Louise Harrington Emerson Ronnebeck. There is a plaque under the mural in Casper that has her complete name.
Thanks to Jimmy Emerson who contributed the photograph and the corrected spelling of the artist's name!
