Scope and content

Item is a b&w negative of a photograph of the continuation of the work on the pole. Norman starts to sketch on the log. The textual info is in WHERE THE PEOPLE GATHER or paperback TOTEM POLE CARVING p. 45-47).

Once the log is suitably rounded, Norman is eager to get the drawings on the pole. He brings in the tissue sketches he did for the bid submission, roughly sketching them onto the log. (Note the 5th image [a020808] shows my darkroom printing notations--often my photo choices are indicated with a wax pencil on the contact sheet—sometimes with an X, sometimes a triangle, sometimes a dot—depending on the job.)
