Eunice Hatfield Smith (1911 to 1985) was born, raised and lived much of her life in Poughkeepsie. She was among the artists who assembled an exhibition in October 1934, under the leadership of Thomas Barrett, at the department store, Luckey Platt. This event turned out to be the creation of the Dutchess County Art Association which thrives to this day, and the beginning of many such exhibition. DCHS has a copy of the original catalogue of that event (see photo, women artists highlighted in yellow, below).
