On this page are pieces of original art by Allan Clark and Margaret Grigor, and Quarterlies pudlished by SHMA from 1972 to 2007.   Be sure to check out Page 2 where you will find Steilacoom censuses, interesting documents, and maps.
The following is an original 1912 creation by student Allan Clark at age 16, later to gain worldwide acclaim as a sculptor.  This piece is white chalk on a full-size (approximately 4' high) school blackboard.  Following its creation for an upcoming school celebration of Thanksgiving, the school principal ordered the blackboard removed, preserved with a clear-coat, and stored.    It consists of three blackboard segments, shown below separately, and also arranged as they were on the original blackboard.  Included are a closeup sampling to show detail, and a closeup of signature and date.

Middle Segment
Right Segment
All three segments joined (the dark edges of the three segments are an artifact of the digital joining process and are not noticeable on the orginal arework)

The following is original sculpting and relief work by Steilacoom resident, Margaret C. Grigor, in the mid-1900s. some being finished products, some being without final coating, and one as a reversed mold.  Included are a "Grigor" number (if known) assigned by SHMA when the pieces were acquired/accessioned several years ago, and comments if appropriate.  We are not an art museum so please excuse us if we do not use proper terminology concerning castings, coating, etc.
