According to the sitter’s daughter, Mrs. Evelyn Bossong Willetts-Baldauf the portrait was the result of a successful bid of $250.00 at an auction, possibly held at the Lotus Club, possibly in 1942, which may have been a benefit for War Bonds. Apparently four other artist’s also donated their time and skill.
