Gene Charlton
(1909 - 1979)
Carden Bailey
(1911 - 1997)

Texas artists and life partners in the 1930s & 1940s

Much of the information on these pages came from and were inspired by Randy Tibbits.
This began when we asked him to write an essay for The Banner Project.
Since then I have collected some of the work he has coordinated for HETAG,
and this is found on each of the artist's pages.
A section of this site on Randy is at this link.

This was a ten-page letter, just showing the beginning and end

and a Bailey clipping
