Mr Tom Butler
The Foundation would like to offer a heartfelt thank you to our latest benefactor, Mr Tom Butler, for his generous donation in memory of his late wife, MaryJane Spooner. The Butlers had a long and illustrious friendship with the Whitakers that spanned 60 years. The Butlers accompanied Eileen on her trip to Guatamala, a trip that was the inspiration for some of Eileen’s best works of art.
MaryJane, one of Eileen’s closest friends and an early student of Fred’s, donated all of her correspondence with Eileen to Syracuse University Library.
