Van Dearing Perrine (1869+1955) founded an artist's colony at Ridgefield, New Jersey in the 1890s, where he was closely associated with such other notable New York painters as William Glackens, James Maxfield, Grant Wright, and Albert Groll.  Emma Goldman was also an occasional visitor after the turn of the century. Periine has signed his entry in the volume, as Edward, John Allison, Peyton Boswell, Gerald Foster, Robert Pederson, and Luigi Lucioni (all of whom achieved some prominence in the WPA ear) as well as noted Art-Deco sculptor Walande Gregory. A scarce volume, and unique thus.
