A Sculptor's Christmas Story

Avard T. Fairbanks' Spirit of Christmas Through the Years

Authored by Eugene F Fairbanks
Other primary creator Avard T Fairbanks

A Sculptor's Christmas Story was written to relate some of the interesting events of the personal life of Avard T. Fairbanks, including the caring aspects of personal life in contrast to the professional demands of the sculptor. The growth and development of the family, illustrated with drawings and photographs, further exemplifies home life and an anticipation of the benevolent endeavors, the congenial expressions, and all other efforts involving the Spirit of Christmas. The celebration of Christmas and the New Year were particularly memorable events for the Fairbanks family. A recognition of the effects of the changing times of a society and its environment are included in many descriptions and illustrations. These relate to various residences in different states and nations, adding special interest. The story also illustrates changes in modes of travel that involve horse-drawn wagons, early automobiles, trains, ships and finally aircraft.
