Notes: 
Correspondence documents exchange between Virginia Evans, the painter/sculpter that was asked to design a distinctive new line for Imperial Glass Corporation, and Carl Gustkey, the President of Imperial Glass. In 1943, Evans began her research which was conducted in New York, Chicago, and Boston. She drew designs and created clay models which were used to make molds. The glass was finally produced in April 1949. The new Cathay line was heavily influenced by the Chinese, with design elements that included functionalism, harmony, and technical integrity (design suitable for the material to be used). This line emphasized the return of art to the senses, spirit, and nature.
