Jefferson High School possesses 19 original drawings by Lute Pease, who drew for the Newark Evening Star and probably other papers. Pease won a Pulitzer Prize for this work in 1949. The artworks need immediate restoration.

Much thanks to alumni Ancil Nance who  made careful photographs of all of the Pease drawings.
