The W. Garrett Hume mentioned in the previous posting is actually the grand-nephew of the artist by the same name.
I've tried finding more info on this artist but so far have nothing nothing beyond the fact that he was based in Delaware and died probably in the 1950s.

a guess as to identity and biography
The W. Garrett Hume I knew graduated from Woodstown, NJ High School in 1959, and from Trenton State College (Now "The College of New Jersey") in 1963. He went on to get a doctorate in Speech and Hearing Pathology, and taught for many years at East Carolina University. He would be pushing 70 by now, and somehow the idea that he would be painting as an encore strikes me as characteristic about the fellow (at least when I knew him, in the early '60s. I was known as "Bama" at Trenton State. If he sees this, I'd like to hear from him (and maybe buy some of his art, if he'll buy some of my poetry).
