Museum mystery

Jim Nelson, curator of the Corry Historical Museum, believes this is a portrait of former U.S. Attorney General and Associate Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson, the Spring Creek native who served as chief U.S. prosecutor at the Nuremberg Trials. Nelson is looking for information about the painting, which he also believes could be the work of artist Don Wharton, a Spring Creek man whose family owned the former Deer Head Inn restaurant on Route 426 east of Spring Creek. The painting was recently donated to the museum, where it is now on display. If you have information, visit or call the museum at 664-4749. Journal photo by Stephen Sears
