Busch, Henry Paul (1873-1942)
Schule, Clifford Hamilton
Mr. Busch (1873-1942) was President of the Welcome Society at the time Pennsbury Manor was reconstructed, thus the reason the artist included that house in the background.
The Athenaeum reading room is named in Mr. Busch's honor. It was dedicated on April 6, 1992, by Mrs. deHellebranth--member of the Athenaeum board of directors, Mr. Busch's daughter, and the donor of the renovation funds.
