Rhodes, Daniel

In a letter from Joseph Hall, he describes how this piece came into their possession.

"The piece is one of Rhodes' earlier works and come into our possession through an intermediary.  When I was a teaching fellow at Harvard in 1945 one of my fellow students in the doctoral program was Mildred M Landis who also taught a course in ceramics in which my wife was enrolled.  ...We kept in touch and twenty years ago she gave us the Rhodes piece as a gift.

Dr. Landis had received the piece from Daniel Rhodes when he was teaching at Alfred University and Dr. Landis was a mature student there.  I do recall that she had the piece in her apartment in Cambridge."
