Marvelous 1935 Ruth Taylor White pictorial map of Hawaii and Samoa


Pictorial map of Hawaii and Samoa drawn by the famous illustrator, Ruth Taylor White, and published in Our USA: A Gay Geography.

Born in 1899, Taylor and her family, like many, headed persistently west in the late 19th century, finally settling in California.

In the spring of 1930, White spent five weeks in Hawaii. Her trip was likely prompted by a commission from the Hawaii Tourist Bureau to draw maps of the Hawaiian islands.
