Cover image: In 1962, Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS) photographer Jack E. Boucher captured the surviving Walker sisters, Margaret (age 91, standing) and Louisa (age 79), in front of their house in Gatlinburg, TN. Boucher's visit to the Walker family farm was actually the second by a National Park Service photographer. The first was by Edouard E. Exline in 1936. His photographs are preserved in the album, "A Sketch of Mountain Life: Great Smoky Mountains National Park" as well as in the HABS collection at the Library of Congress. (Jack E.
