Name: Lark-Horovitz, Betty (1894-1994)
Variant Name: Betty Lark-Horowitz


Historical Note:

Mrs. Betty Lark-Horovitz was an artist of international renown. She was commissioned to do etchings of several buildings at Purdue University in 1930. These buildings were Ladies Hall, The Old Dormitory, The Pharmacy Building, University Hall and the Mechanical Engineering Building. The etchings, one of which was in color, were issued in Limited Form. There were only 100 sets, each numbered and signed by the artist.

Mr. W. H. Winterrowd, M. E., '07 conceived of the idea of having the etchings done, and he underwrote the cost, and presented the entire 100 sets to Purdue University. The sets were to be sold and the entire income from their sale was to go to the University. They were sold at $100 per set.

Mrs. Betty Lark-Horovitz was the wife of Dr. Lark-Horovitz who was in charge of the Department of Physics at Purdue. She lived to be 100.
