Students donate portrait of Curry to museum


Gregory Harvey, president of the Champaign County Historical Society, accepts a portrait of local educator E.W.B. Curry from Urbana Junior High teachers Sadie Steffan and Amanda Goodwin. While investigating the history of Curry, students found him to be underrepresented at the society’s museum on East Lawn Avenue in Urbana, so commissioned his portrait to be done by junior high art teacher Mandy Parker.
