Post subject:  Looking for pax car artist info

I am looking for information on several artists that did work on Budd-produced cars in the 1940s. The names are Pierre Bourdelle, Mary Louise Lawsen, David Harriton and Russell Patterson. This is in regards to my CZ web site project, and I'm looking for bio info on these artists (although I already have a fair amount on Bourdelle, I have next to nothing on the others), images of their works (CZ especially, but for other roads if you have 'em), etc.<p>All four did their work through the Philadelphia architectual firm of Harbeson, Hough Livingston & Larson (who's still in business, and there's someone there checking for me as well), which did a lot of design work for Budd. Although I have not checked personally, I know someone who had contacted Bombardier (current owner of Budd's rail car assets), and they could find no info.<p>Thanks much!<p>Alan Radecki<br>Calzephyr@railfan.net<br>amfmx@earthlink.net<br>
