Merry Christmas from the Rhodens!

Contributed by Kelin Baldridge and Jahna Auerbach, the John Rhoden papers team

If the John Rhoden papers are any indication, the Rhodens really loved Christmas, so it seems only right to celebrate this holiday season with just a few of the dozens of Christmas portraits present in the collection.
