Sources of Information

As I said at the outset I am interested in gaining more information about Charles S. Hall. If you are aware of the locations of any more of his carvings, knowledge of his connection to the Daytona Beach Millwork Co. and St. Matthews Episcopal Church in Morvaia, NY, or are interested in sharing your comments regarding the Master Carver of the Roycroft please contact me at jim@grandisleartworks.com.
