Ruth Taylor White
29.3 x 21.5 cm (11.5 x 8.5 in)
Pictorial map of Hawaii and Samoa drawn by the famous illustrator, Ruth Taylor White, and published in Our USA: A Gay Geography.
Ruth Taylor White was among the most prolific makers of pictographic maps, and her maps are among the most collected pictographs.
Born in 1899, Taylor and her family, like many, headed persistently west in the late 19th century, finally settling in California.
In the spring of 1930, White spent five weeks in Hawaii. Her trip was likely prompted by a commission from the Hawaii Tourist Bureau to draw maps of the Hawaiian islands.
Very good condition. Descriptive text of Idaho on verso.
