To Whom It May Concern - and Shana, 

Please accept this letter as your official notification that I, Sue Willoughby, widow of Jim Willoughby, do hereby release any and all copyright interest I may hold in the article entitled, "Pioneer Women:  Arizona History Through Art" originally published by American Art Review in their Vol. x, No 2, 1998 edition of the magazine. 

The article, which dealt with an exhibit at the Phippen Museum in Prescott, AZ was co-written by my husband, Jim, and Dr. Robert Stragnell as a volunteer effort to assist the museum.  Since I was the Director of the museum at the time, I can attest to the fact that no funds were paid to either party for their efforts, but rather that they used their skills to assist the museum on a volunteer basis with no compensation. 

Further, all of my husband's copyright issues are covered in the Willoughby Family Trust and I currently serve as Trustee.  If you need a copy of the Trust Existence, please let me know. 

Once again, I wish to extend my sincere thanks to all involved for publishing the information on the Internet.  The exhibit was far more appealing and interesting than originally anticipated and we had requests for exhibit catalogs for several years after the show was dismantled. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.


Sue Willoughby

Robert Stragnell

Robert Stragnell was born in Ossining, New York and after graduating from Medical School at Columbia he moved to California. He initially did research on anticoagulant therapy and the biochemistry of blood coagulation in the Departments of Medicine and Biochemistry at the University of Southern California. Later he was an independent specialist in Internal Medicine and Cardiology in Arcadia, California. He was a Reader at the Huntington Library studying the history of early Southern California Ranches. He served as the President of the Los Angeles Academy of Medicine, the California Society of Internal Medicine and was active with many other professional and civic organizations. Upon retirement Dr. Stragnell moved to Prescott, Arizona where his interest in western history continued at the Sharlott Hall Museum. Because of a long held interest in art, he volunteered at the Phippen Museum of Western Art and was the curator of two exhibitions there: Landscapes of the West, August 20 - November 11, 1993; Five Ladies of Prescott and Their Art, September 23 - November 12, 1995. He now lives in the upper valley of the Connecticut River.

A special TFAO emphasis is building an archive of material, authored by scholars and other informed individuals, beneficial for the study of art history in the United States. As a public service, without charge to readers, TFAO annually publishes a number of scholarly texts relating to American representational art in its publication Resource Library.

American Art Review, ISSN 0092-1327, is published on paper and noted for its scholarly content by both senior authors and younger scholars. Tel 913.451.8801. The time period focus of American Art Review is from the Colonial era through 1970. The first issue of Volume 1 of the magazine was published in September, 1973. Publication was suspended with Volume 4 in November, 1978. Publication resumed with Volume V in the Summer of 1992 and continues to the present. In the 19th century there was a journal with a similar title, The American Art Review: A Journal Devoted to The Practice, Theory, History and Archaeology of Art edited by S.R. Koehler.

From time to time, TFAO contacts copyright owners of American Art Review articles and requests permission to reprint catalogue essays from which the articles were derived. -- without illustrations -- in Resource Library. As an alternate, TFAO may obtain permission to reprint the American Art Review articles without illustrations.

Currently TFAO volunteers and contractors are reviewing articles published in American Art Review from 1992 through 1998 in alphabetical order by author's last name. Contractors enter into an independent contractor agreement with TFAO for processing specified texts. For information on contracting opportunities please click here.
