Work influenced by a long association with the Indians of Vancouver Island marks the painting of Margaret Peterson (O’Hagan). Peterson, described by former colleagues and students as a “brilliant” critic of student work and a “passionate” teacher, was an Associate Professor of Art who resigned her position at UC Berkeley in protest against the loyalty oath. Although Peterson went on to a long career in painting, with many exhibits and prizes to her credit, she never returned to the university.
