Notes Born in West Virginia in the mid-1920s, Ray Harm served in WWII and attended the Cooper School of Art in Cleveland under the GI Bill. He attracted the interest of Louisville businessman Wood Hannah(1904-1989), and together the pair founded Frame House Gallery in 1962. FHG is credited with jump starting the modern limited edition print industry. Harm became the first Donovan Scholar at the University of Kentucky and was appointed the official naturalist and lecturer for Kentucky State Parks by Governor Bert Combs. The color separations were made by Stevenson Photo Color in Cincinnati, and printed by Standard Printing in Louisville.
