"Walter Anderson was an avid keeper of journals, which he called his logs.  He documented much of his time on the barrier islands with many examples of which are collected in the book The Horn Island Logs of Walter Inglis Anderson.  In addition to th elogs lept during his extended island stays.  Walter kept fairly meticulous accounts of his travels.  And intrepid traveler, her rode his bicycle across Texas, to New York City, and to Miami, in addition to his attempt to cross China on bicycle in 1949.  Many of these logs no longer exist, but transcriptions of them do.  We hep to put together a book of Walter Anderson's travel journals in the future." Source of article is literature from Walter Anderson Museum exhibit.

THINK OF WINSLOW HOMER, EDWARD HOPPER, THOMAS HART BENTON, GEORGIA O'KEEFE, AND OTHER AMERICAN MASTERS.  I BELIEVE WALTER ANDERSON WILL TAKE HIS PLACE BESIDE THEM AS A GREAT AMERICAN MASTER.
