strict warning: Only variables should be passed by reference in /websites/teachinghistory/sites/all/modules/date/date_api.module on line 866.

In this installment of The Library of Congress Webcasts series, author Gail Dickersin Spilsbury discusses her new book A Washington Sketchbook: Drawings by Robert L. Dickinson, 1917-18. As the webcast describes, Robert L. Dickinson was New York physician "stationed in Washington during World War I and in his free time was a prolific artist. An avid nature lover, he explored both sides of the Potomac River, sketching the woodsy and idyllic scenery that captured a now-vanished way of life."
