A SAD FAREWELL CLEVELAND - At their last board meeting, hospital board members, who resigned because of the resignations of the medical staff who stated they were unable to work with the board, enjoyed a decorated cake bearing the mes- sage, "Thanks For The M emories." -O- -O- Portrait of Frank Eaton Donated To OSU Foundation by Artist An original portrait of Frank Eaton, the legendary cowboy for whom Oklahoma State University modeled its Pistol Pete mascot, has been donated to the OSU Founda-" tion by artist Brummett Echo- hawk, of Tulsa. The portrait, entitled "Pistol Pete, Frank E ator~ "is the only live setting Eaton ever granted. It was completed the year Eaton died in 1958. ' 'I had known him for many years and felt a portrait should be done of him--he's a part of Oklahoma history," said Echohawk, who is nationally-recognized portrait artist. The painting was officially presented to university and Foun- dation officials March 27 in a lun- cheon ceremony on the Oklahoma State campus. Echohawk was scheduled to give a lecture at 3:30 p.m. in the Bartlett Center for the Studio Arts. A reception in Gar- diner Gallery, located in the Bartlett Center for the Studio Arts, was held at 4:30 p.m. Both events were open to the public. The painting will be on tem- porary display in Gardiner Hall un- til a permanent site has been deter- mined by OSU officials. During his career, Echohawk has gained fame as a painter of Native American Indians and of subjects from the American West. Painting mostly landscapes and portraits in oil, Echohawk employs an impres- sionistic style, applying his paints with a palette knife or bowie knife. Echohawk's works can be seen in galleries nationwide, including the classicly-styled tempera painting, "the Trail of Tears," hanging in the Gilcrease Museum in Tuls~ He was also commissioned by the Alurninum Company of America for a painting depicting the early ex- ploration of the Tennessee valley. As a boy, Echohawk became close with Eaton, who he said was always a colorful character. 'Tie was one of the last gunfighters in Oklahoma. His exploits were very well known by my family and friends," said Echohawk. Eaton became a gunfighter as a young boy after vowing revenge upon his father's killers. After he hunted down the killers, he became a U. S. Marshal and was famous as a trick-shot artist and horseman. He died at the age of 98 in Perkins.
