December 8, 2013
Williamsport Sun-Gazette

Rena Frankeberger was the supervisor of art in the Williamsport schools for at least 20 years - from about 1910 until 1930. She might have been forgotten in Williamsport if she had not worked along with students and teachers at Curtin Middle School to design and paint 46 murals depicting scenes from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's epic poem "The Song of Hiawatha." The murals were painted over the course of three years during the Depression, from 1932 to 1935.
