Portrait of Noah Smith

Noah Smith April 22, 1945, USS La Vallette crew member.

WWII shipmate, “Snuffy” Smith, introduced George S. Eisenberg to chewing tobacco while sitting on the fantail of the USS LaVallette.  George claims he didn’t particularly like the dizzy feeling, choosing paper and pencil over tobacco. This portrait of his friend Noah was done while they were stationed in Subic Bay, Luzon Philippines in 1945.

    Julie, please tell George that every time I visit his site, I am amazed at how his sketches come alive. The world he was immersed in becomes so vivid with the glimpses afforded by his pencil. I’m so thankful that he took the time to draw what he observed, and just as thankful that you, Julie, are there to put his work online and share it with the world. 🙂
