Looked up Umbarto Morganti who was the soul proprieter of The Denver Art Studio. My mom worked for him at the age of 15 as a model and office assistant. She told me he was very well liked and had a very kind personality and fairly emotional about things, sometimes. I guess that came with being a writer and contributor to the press and being very aware of human behavior. Anyway, that was a fun read to get details that people often forget.
