115. Tyler, Francine. “The Angel in the Factory: Images of Women Workers Engraved on Ante-bellum Bank Notes.” Vol. 19, no. 1 (Spring 1994), 2-10.

Tyler has assembled images of women at work, including some depicting women in the textile industry. Many bank notes were issued by banks in communities noted for their textile factories. Tyler provides a brief history of textile manufacturing in New England and the makers of the images and their sources. A vignette of a female slave and child is also reproduced in this article.

116. White, Robert R. “The Southwestern Etchings of Peter Moran: A History and Catalog.” Vol. 19, no. 1 (Spring 1994), 11-28.

Peter Moran (1841-1914), attracted to New Mexico by its scenery and people, made his first trip there by railroad in 1880. He returned during the next three years, producing an important body of work including fourteen etchings thoroughly described in this well-researched essay. White adds another etching to the catalog in a brief note in the Spring 1995 Imprint (Vol. 20, no. 1, 34-5): Santa Fe, 1883, which is related to a photograph by William Henry Jackson.
