This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The Calvin Fletcher student group is an impressive one, a good example of this is the artistic accomplishment of a young Hooper, Utah widow who took classes from the Logan master in the mid-1920s.  Her name was Clara Irene Thompson (b. Oct. 17), and she was Fletcher's charming "star" pupil in 1925-26.  In fact, her "personality endeared her to everyone, especially to the teacher."

Zettie Fletcher, the professor's second wife, had died giving birth to her sixth child, and with Sarah Ann Fletcher's two children that made eight, that is until December 24, 1926 when Calvin Fletcher and Irene Thompson were married, her six children bringing the total to 14!

Irene Thompson Fletcher had also taken classes from Harry Reynolds and she would also study with Floyd Cornaby and (in summers) with Gaylen Hansen, B.J.O. Nordfelt, Otis Oldfield, Ralph Pearson, Lee Randolph, and Birger Sandzen.

And like Calvin, from these teachers (and from her husband as well), she was to develop a thorough-going understanding of "modern" style and then an admirably controlled and often gracious sense of artistic interpretation beyond the initial appearance of things in nature.
