This 1960s home movie shows Fort Worth native and longtime Corpus Christi resident Billie Trimble Chandler hosting a community play and showcasing her storybook art. The play, The Life of Winston Churchill, is performed by young children. Later, Chandler demonstrates storybook art, a skill she learned in Japan that uses dolls and intricate floral arrangements to tell a story. Chandler lived and worked in Japan for many years. When she returned to Texas in 1971, she brought with her a large collection of Japanese art, establishing the Japanese Art Museum of Corpus Christi in 1974. (The museum is now known as the Texas State Museum of Asian Cultures.)
