A Madison Cawein Sesquicentennial

By Spencer Cawein Pate

Today, March 23, 2015, is the one hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the birth of Madison Julius Cawein. To celebrate–and to enact a little more “poetic justice”–my dad had these beautiful stamps made with Madison’s image:

Here is a close-up of the image of Madison at work:

Finally, we also purchased a flower arrangement for Madison’s grave in Louisville’s Cave Hill Cemetery. Two pictures follow below:
