The Psychic Artist
When a student at Central High (established in 1853, "Oldest High School West of the Mississippi"), Geneva was selected to create the introductory illustration for their yearbook, The Red and Black. Theme: The Future. She drew the St. Louis riverfront seen through an arch. Some 30 years later when the Gateway Arch was conceived, someone discovered that earlier rendition and the newspaper sent a reporter out to interview this "psychic artist," giving Geneva and family a good laugh. In 2000, local TV news again raised the subject of the drawing, asking "Whatever became of Geneva Abbott?" Here on her website, you can answer the question for yourself.
