See Arizona Highways, January, 1974, Vol. XLX No.1, p.4-5. From the Editor's Note at the beginning of the article "Another Picasso? Fritz Scholder": "...done during his tenure as artist-in-residence at Dartmouth University, during the fall of 1973... the Dartmouth Portraits indicate a feeling of respect for the strong and positive qualities of the Indian character, which we feel reflects the thinking of an artist whose work speaks most eloquently of a new found peace, understanding and security."
