Penrod Archives

I was contacted by an archivist at the Penland School of crafts, who is trying to locate an article and/or information which appeared in Friends Magazine on the Penland School of Handicrafts. The article seems to have appeared before 1962, and since my collection of Friends Magazines is concentrated on the contributions made by Edward Gorey, my copies do not go back this far.

Shown are two photos in the archives. Notes on the photos indicate that photographer Joe Clark shot them for Friends Magazine. The photos in the archives are not dated, but the man pictured in the images is weaver Rupert Peters (who died in 1961). If anyone has older copies of Friends and can give information to the archive, please contact Michelle Francis, Penland School of Crafts at
