"Mrs. Clinton Everingham and sons, Raymond and Laurence, of Honolulu, have arrived at the California coast, where they will spend a month with Mr. Everingham, U. S. Navy. Later Mrs. Everingham and sons will visit their aunt, Mrs. Ella Fisher, in Manlius,"
"Mr. and Mrs. Millard Everingham received a letter this week from their son, Donald Everingham, now stationed in Oran, Africa. Mr. Everingham writes that at present he is doing night ward-duty. He is with the 48th Surgical Hospital,"
"Donald Everingham, son of Mr. and Mrs. Millard Everingham, of Smith street, has been awarded the Purple Heart for bravery under fire. He was wounded in action. Commando Everingham enlisted in the Medical division, but transferred while in Africa. He has recovered from his injuries and will return to duty,"
"After more than two and a half years overseas--most of it spent with the rugged First Ranger battalion--Donald M. Everingham, Manlius artist, is home, honorably discharged. And his immediate project is a book of prints, originals for which were made in the combat theaters. Not pictures of 'pretty-faced soldiers eating their C rations with relish,' he emphasizes, but, rather, the kind of GIs he saw. 'After you've seen a bit of service, the pretty pictures make you a little weary,' Everingham says. That 'bit of service' includes scrambling ashore in the original November, 1942, landing in North Africa and the Ranger invasions in Sicily and Italy, and, later, at Marseille, France.
"Millard Everingham, whose paintings appear in the current Harwood Foundation exhibition, has recently held a one-man show at the Palace of the Legion of Honor in San Francisco, another at Syracuse University and one of his oil paintings of one of his neighbors at Ranchos de Taos has been added to the permanent collection of the Dallas, Texas Museum. Meantime Mr. Everingham is far from the field of art, but storing up impressions and making sketches for work in the future, as a member of a U. S. Army medical corps detachment in service in North Africa. From San Francisco comes a comment from Dr. Termayne MacAgy, acting director of the San Francisco Gallery, stating that the exhibition was one of the best one-man shows that we have ever had in this building, and everyone, young and old, conventional and modern, enjoyed it very much. Mr. Everingham does not deal in the spacious New Mexico of Peter Hurd or the romantic Indian world of the Taos and Santa Fe groups. It is said he divides his time between a ghost town called Pents Altos, the mining camp of Mogollon and Taos. Anyhow, what seems to fascinate him most is the shacks in the hills, the unpainted houses, the corrugated iron garages and the dusty mine buildings. These he presents through a crystal clear atmosphere in cool but rich color, in spacious sizable compositions. As Henry Rust, of the legion staff, remarked, 'He is master of straight honest-to-goodness drawing, he knows his craft, and he knows what he is about, but one of his major virtues is his refusal to go slick and tricky,"
"Donald Everingham of Mexico is passing a month visiting his parents Mr. and Mrs. Millard Everingham and other relatives and friends,"
