Portraits from the Home Front

Elizabeth Black's family discovered copies of about 100 portraits in her collection. WQED is working to find the surviving veterans or descendants who might be interested in these keepsake portraits drawn by Elizabeth during WW2. Please share this page with veterans organizations or others who might help WQED connect these sketches with appreciative families.

The gallery also includes some sketches that did reach the home front during World War II. The families have provided copies to help complete the collection and better catalogue Miss Black's work. Those portraits are noted accordingly. Watch for new portraits and corrected info as we receive it.
