Georgia O'Keeffe and Texas


Georgia O'Keeffe in Canyon by Fred Stoker

Dr. W.M. "Fred" Stoker joined the faculty of WTAMU in 1958. He was a professor of Education at the university until his retirement in 1985. A prolific writer, Stoker wrote a 44-page booklet summarizing the time that Georgia O'Keeffe lived in Canyon, from 1916 to early 1918.

Stoker wrote his account seventy-one years after O'Keeffe left Canyon, researching all the information that was available at the time. While able to interview only one person with first-hand knowledge about O'Keeffe in Canyon, Stoker included only anecdotes that, while perhaps apocryphal, seemed entirely plausible.

You may read the blend of facts and local stories below.
