Helen Page

One of the highlights of San Antonio was a Special Exhibit of Helen Page's work. Collector Marion Creamer was lucky enough to have a paper doll of herself as a child by Helen Page (Marion added the gold wings!) and there were many examples of Page's work and original art, including the Marmee doll that apparently was never included with the Little Women set published by Shackman. Helen's daughter, Margaret Allen, was in attendance, and said her mother still paints every day. San Antonio convention-goers let her know how much her mother's work is cherished by collectors.
