Chairman of the William Jennings Bryan Memorial Committee, Sarah W. Cary, introducing mural artist, June Goldsborough. June was a local artist who, after attending Southeastern Missouri State College and St. Louis School of Fine Arts at Washington University, moved to New York City in 1949. In 1985, Goldsborough returned to Salem. She is best known for her illustrations in children's books. The podium from which they spoke belongs to the Salem Presbyterian Church and was made especially for the church as a gift from William Jennings Bryan, a former member of the church.
