I too remember F. Carlton Ball talkig about being in the 1939 World's Fair
ar Treasure Island, the man-made island off Yerba Buena in the middle of
San Francisco Bay. Carlton told us of this when we were demonstrating at
the Western Washington Fair at Puyallup Wa. while I was in Grad school.
Have some funny stories from that expereince. One young boy came up and
said LOOK MA THEY'RE MAIKIN' JUNK!
Back to the '39 world's fair, my dad went to that one and said that there
was a big display of plasitc there and that plasitc was the comming thing
according to many of the displays there. He did not remember the potters
exhibit, but said there were lots of Art displays.
BTW TI (Treasure Island) was a Navy base while I was growing up in San
