Quarry Drug Oldest Store on Historic State Street

The old Quarry Drug store, es-
tablished as the first store on State
Street in 1900, stood on this site
until 1935, when it moved across
the street to its present location.
James Quarry had established
the store on Main Street in 1898
but moved up to greener pastures
two years later. In 1939 Robert C.
Bliss and his partner Duane H.
Edison, bought the store from
Messrs. Drake and Pettegrew.
On its old corner location, Quar-
ry hosted on its top floors the old
University athletic department.
For many years the football team

would go to its meals over the
Quarry at the famous "training
tables," dedicated to best nutrition
Ann Arbor could offer to the ath-
Ten years ago the Quarry ex-
panded into the former site of Mc-
Queen's Grocery and took on the
sideline of photography.
Starting out with one man, the
store now handles almost all stu-
dent's personal or photographic
needs, utilizing the services of over
40 employes, including 13 pharma-

QUARRYDRUG-This building on the corner of N. University and State Streets housed the first
store in the State area, a drugstore run by James Quarry. Above this store the football team ate
at their "training tables" and the athletic department supervised the building of the present athlet-
iW department and teams. The Quarry moved across the street in 1935.

Forsythe Gallery sparkles with
color all year round but especial-
ly at Christmas when 'objets d'art'
are on display for those who want.
an additional touch of beauty for
their Christmas celebrations.
Roberta McClure, a local artist,
has created a series of papier-
mache figures for Christmas, in-
cluding . an angel in red with an
intricately folded robe. The Three
Wise Men, Madonnas, and a blue
wolf with a happy smile are others
of her figures.
Prof. Frank Cassara of the
School of Architecture and Design
has designed a Christmas card for
the Michigan Heart Association
which the gallery is selling as a
public service. The design is a
simple, dignified depiction of a
mother and child.'
Another style of Christmas
cards, these done by Zubel Kacha-
doorian and Irma Cavah, depict
angels in deeper and light blues
with trumpets and a simple
Christmas greeting inside. They
have also created another card
with a cherub emerging from a
treasure chest and holding a
Christmas candle.
Forsythe Gallery attracts con-
tributing artists from the Univer-
sity, the local area and from
around the country and other na-
tions as well. Prof. Richard Wilt
of the Architecture and Design
School, while on sabbatical at the

island of Antigua, did "The Ba-
nana Tree," a large painting done
in blues and greens, shading off
into deep blue, turquoise and black
with touches of white. The work
was done in a new plastic medium
called acrylic resin which is used
like oil.
Big City
Prof. Louise Jansson Nobilii of
Wayne State University has on
display a striking portrait of a
big city, "The Night Concert."
Done in squares of gold and silver
oils, the nocturnal scene is sparked
with oranges, reds, pinks and
darker shades, creating a mood of
congestion and chaos.
A young California artist, Mrs.
Lee Weiss, has several water
colors at the gallery. In her unique
style she captures the quiet, bar-
ren feeling of desolated seashores
and dark skies.
Of special interest to students
of French history is a collection
of mid-nineteenth century poli-
tical cartoons by the French poli-.
tical satirist Honore Daumier.
These Collector's items depict the
people of Paris in their daily ac-
tivities, with cryptic commentary.
Japanese Art
Another unique artist represent-
ing her work at the Forsythe Gal-
lery is Hozan Mutsumote from
Kobe, Japan, who sends her work
to the gallery. Her Sumi ink draw-
ings on silk picture the peace of
the Japanese landscape with finely

drawn lines and shadings.
One of the top print-makers in
the United States, Prof. Gabor
Peterdi of Yale University, has an
oil, "Gulf Stream," and etchings
on display.
A striking picture of a "Woman
of Palermo" done by Zubel Kacha-
doorlan is an impressionistic view
of a woman in pale lavendars. The
figure and the color convey a mood
of calm.
In contrast, Chet Lamore's pic-
ture of "Sand Storm, New Mex-
ico" is bold sweeps of orange with
a splash of still more brilliant or-
The gallery has several ink-
wash drawings by Nico Lebrun
who has a talent for capturing in-
tense human feelings. His "Man
Carrying a Donkey," "Carpenter,"
and "Soldier Resting on One
Hand" are done in stark black
The owners of the gallery, Jessie
W. Forsythe and Anne R. Heller,
commented that exhibits are
changed every third week and
welcome anyone to come in and
browse. They began the gallery
for local exhibitors but in the 15
years it has been in business it
has attracted artists from all over
the world.
Among the interesting things
that have come in for resale have
been works by Goya, Rembrandt
and Durer.
