Vera Morel, May Syndor Morel's younger sister, provided this illustration for the introduction to the yearbook section on athletics. Both young women played on the Newcomb Art School basketball team in 1907. Note the suggestion of equality between the Tulane and Newcomb athletic programs, despite the fact that Newcomb is actually only represented in the basketball arena. Vera Morel went on to a career as an artist with the Surgery Department of Tulane Medical School.
