Subject: Joe Krush, illustrator for the Army & OSS at founding of UN and Nuremburg trials

John Thornton's Documentary Film about Philadelphia's (not yet) famous illistrator

John Thorton's Intro on YouTube:
On January 11th, I met for lunch in Wayne with members of an art class whose beloved teacher is named Joe Krush.

  • I had been invited by one of Joe’s students who had emailed me:
    • "My name is Linda Finkelstein. Liz Wilson gave me your email. I don't know if you would be interested or not, but I know a wonderful 98 year old artist, Joe Krush, who would be a great subject for a video."
  • It turns out that Joe and his late wife Beth are the legendary illustrators of such classic children’s books as The Borrowers and Gone Away Lake.

Editor's Note: The above text introduces this marvelous heart-filled video portrait of a humble man.

    • Everyone innterested in Philadelpha's history, art, and great people should see this film.
