1948   Eleanor Bowman, wife of co-founder Robert H. Bowman, was a gifted artist and her skills were put to good use in the early days of FEBC. On early "deputation" tours in the U.S. she would create "chalk talks" before live audiences in supporting churches. One favorite image was that of a chasm separating people from God, over which a cross was drawn, demonstrating the means of salvation. Live music would accompany the drawings. Eleanor also provided the majority of the artwork, layout and copy for the FEBC Broadcaster publications for several decades. The date of this photo is an estimate.
