The workshop was held annually from 1953 to 1966, and Julia Caine served as the Assistant Director of the workshop for several years.

At the time of his death, Verl was a resident at the Seville Retirement Residence in Orem. His long and eventful life was an inspiration to family and friends, who will dearly miss his happy countenance and generous spirit. Verl was born on May 12, 1917, in Mammoth, a small mining town in Juab County, where his father worked as hoist engineer in the mine. He grew up in a large family of six boys and two girls during hard economic times that made it necessary for him to work to support himself from an early age. Verl graduated from Orem's Lincoln High School in 1935, along with his twin sister Venna. Enrolling at BYU, he eventually earned both bachelor's and master's degrees in Botany and Zoology, becoming the first member of his family to obtain a college education. During the war years, Verl worked in San Diego in an aircraft factory helping to build B-24 bombers and PBY-amphibian planes. He was a member of the Brigham Young University High School faculty from 1950 until its closing in 1968. In 1968, he was selected as Outstanding Biology Teacher by the National Association of Biology Teachers. That same year he joined the faculty of the General College at BYU. In 1971, he moved to the Department of Zoology, where he worked until his retirement in 1982. Verl married Lula Marchant in the Logan Temple in 1950. Together they served an LDS mission in Uruguay in 1953. Upon their return, Verl was called as bishop of the Provo Seventh Ward. Verl and Lula visited over 40 countries during their life's travels together. On two occasions, they moved their family to Africa for extended stays. In 1958-59, Verl was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship, which took him and his family to West Africa. He taught at the Nigerian College of Arts, Science & Technology in Enugu, Nigeria. From 1965-67, Verl and his young family lived on the campus of the Mkushi International College in Zambia, where he had charge of the science curriculum. In 1973-74, he again took leave of his teaching responsibilities at BYU to spend a year in LDS-sponsored schools across Mexico, working with faculty at each school to improve instructional skills. Verl was a lifelong gardener, celebrated for his fruits and vegetables "especially his tomatoes" who once grafted ten different kinds of apples onto a single tree. At an early age, he taught himself to play the piano and became an accomplished musician. He excelled at dancing as well. He was also a founding member of his Oak Hills neighborhood organization; a skilled fisherman and outdoorsman, who worked for several summers as a ranger for the National Forest Service; and a landscape architect, who collected over a hundred boulders for landscaping projects during what he jokingly referred to as his "rock and roll years." He was affectionately known by generations of neighborhood children as "Uncle Bug." In retirement, Verl and Lula especially enjoyed researching family history and genealogy. He wrote two books on family history, one devoted to the "Thomas Allman Family History" and the other to his autobiography. Verl is survived by his brother, Samuel Allman, Jr., of Bountiful; many nieces and nephews; his two sons, Dwight D. Allman and Mark G. Allman; his daughters-in-law, Wendy and Kathy; and three grandchildren, Alissa, Anthony, and Sebastian. Funeral services were held Thursday, October 16, 2008, at the Oak Hills Sixth Ward Chapel, 1900 N. 1500 E., in Provo. Interment, Provo City Cemetery. [Provo Daily Herald, Tuesday, October 14, 2008.]

[Deseret News, Saturday, June 26, 1993.] ~ ~ ~ ~ HIS WIFE'S OBITUARY: Irva Rose Pratt Andrus passed from this life on Sept. 28, 2004, surrounded by her family in Provo. She had shown her determination to endure through 91 years of life. Her faith in the Savior and in his restored gospel were the foundation of her activities throughout her life. She leaves a legacy of commitment to service and caring. A daughter and granddaughter of pioneer stock, Irva was raised in the red rock sandstone and juniper country of Kanab, Utah. She loved the rhythm and hue of the Kiabab. Her heritage also included the intellectual integrity and curiosity of Orson and Parley Pratt. She developed the soul of a poet and a teacher, a nurturer and worker. Her love for education led her to excel in her Southern Utah primary education and to aspire to collegiate and graduate training, despite her family's humble financial resources. On her way, Irva met Roman Andrus. They married during the Great Depression. She learned during those years to measure every financial transaction and that hope is best placed in more important things than money. She supported Roman in his studies in art school and university, culminating in his doctorate at the University of Colorado. Roman's early graduate work at Columbia University is often remembered by the family as the time of "New Jersey goulash" and simple picnics among the landscapes of upstate New York. As Roman taught and helped the Art Department grow at Brigham Young University, Irva went back to school, while balancing her roles as mother, wife, and church and community worker. She graduated from BYU with her oldest son, Ray. She continued on to obtain a master's degree. At Sunset, Wasatch and Rock Canyon schools, she taught life skills and values as well as scholastic attainment to elementary students. Decades later, she is remembered fondly those her students. Irva loved her associations with BYU. She encouraged and supported Roman's art students, family members and adopted BYU family in their educational efforts. She challenged them to seek after learning out of the best books and experiences. Irva served as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints throughout her life. Always a teacher, she served in ward and stake assignments and cherished her mission with Roman to New Zealand to serve in the temple presidency. She worked along side Roman in the Provo Temple and, after his passing, taught reading at the Missionary Training Center and served as a docent volunteer at the BYU Museum of Art until a stroke ended her physical ability to do so. Irva loved family gatherings and felt bound to carry burdens, often unasked. She didn't care much for trappings and finery. She treasured her mountain homes in Provo and at Sundance, respected the craft of good teaching, and cared deeply for sacred things. Irva was preceded in death by Roman, and she longed to join him. All her brothers and sisters were gathered beyond the veil, except for Iris, who spent hours at her side during her last years of disability. One daughter, Aniece (twin, born on 24 Sep 1939, died on 6 Oct 1939), preceded Irva in death. Irva's posterity includes her son Raphael and his wife, MaryAnn (Olson), and family; her son Greg and his wife, Joan (Morrison), and family; her daughter, Aniene Andrus Porter, and family; and her son Alec and his wife, Linda (McDonald), and family. She loved each of her 22 grandchildren and their spouses and each of her 36 great-grand children. Her funeral service was held in Provo on Monday, Oct. 4, 2004. [Provo Daily Herald, Friday, October 01, 2004.] ~ ~ ~ ~ LECTURE RELEASES FLOOD OF MEMORIES, TEACHINGS. By Dennis Smith. Recently, J. Roman Andrus, who retired 20 years ago from the art faculty of Brigham Young University and whose career spanned 32 years, was subject of the Honored Alumni Lecture given by Jim Christensen, a current faculty member. We were both students of Andrus in the 1960s. I'd like to share a bit of Jim's tribute, including excerpts from letters written by several students influenced by Andrus. Reading them brought back many memories.Early in his talk, Christensen mentioned Andrus' fiery shock of red hair, which never thinned and gradually turned white as he got older: ``My first impression . . . was that here was a force to be reckoned with, and also a man who had his hair done by the same hair dresser as David O. McKay; he had to be a pretty powerful character.'' Peter Myer, who took classes from Andrus in the late '50s, recalls an incident that showed his teaching stature: ``I needed to finish one more painting. . . . On the way to class I purchased several cans of enamel paint; I spread some newspapers on the floor . . . [andT as I started dripping and throwing paint from the cans onto the panel, one of the other students asked me what I was doing. . . . Within a few minutes, all nine students in the class had done Jackson Pollock paintings and we were standing around admiring them when J. Roman walked into the classroom. We silently awaited his reaction as he walked around looking at each of the dribbled and spattered compositions. . . . After a long pregnant silence he said something I was totally unprepared for. He said, `I bet I can tell you which student did which painting. . . .' How could he possibly tell who did which? Nonetheless, he calmly went through and matched up seven of the nine paintings with their perpetrators. The two he missed were students who were new to him. Then he carefully went through all the paintings and explained how we had inevitably expressed ourselves in each of the works - not only a great lesson in the inevitability of personal expression but a marvelous witness to the sensitivity of a truly great leader.'' Andrus' humor is infamous. Christensen recalls an incident from a field trip to southern Utah: ``When we came back the first day from painting out in the Buckhorn Wash, I think, Roman showed us around the campfire a couple of beautiful little arrowheads that he had found. He said, `I was out painting today and just found these; and, if you keep your eyes open, you never know what you'll find.' And so the next day, of course, nobody painted, at least for half a day. We all looked around and we found some little chips and pieces of flint that were abundant. We came back, `Is this one? Is this one?' `Naw, that's not one, that's not one.' But Roman had three beautiful arrowheads and he said, `You don't know how to look!' And the third day, nobody did anything, I don't even think we ate lunch. We just all went around with our noses 6 inches from the ground looking for those arrowheads, determined we were going to find one. In the midst of that, somebody went up a little gully and found Roman sitting on a rock with a beer can opener, chipping arrowheads. It was a good lesson to all of us.'' I had never known that in his youth Roman Andrus had been a boxer. Years later, as Richard[0] Gunn[0] informs us, his stamina stood him to good stead when he and his wife, Irva, while on a trip to the Far East, were caught in a hotel fire. ``Roman climbed down three stories using his toes and fingers to cling to the small spaces between the stones - with Irva standing on his shoulders. They were [amongT the few on the third floor to survive the terrible fire that swept the Bangkok hotel, where they were staying.'' Robert Marshall, who served as department chairman for several years, recalls: ``When I think of Roman I am instantly reminded of a self-portrait he did during a sabbatical leave in the middle '60s. He was staring right at you with those penetrating pupils and a mane of unruly hair as theatrical as a character out of the French Revolution. He was formidable - you knew that whatever you did . . . he would expect more. His expectations were uncompromising, but if you earned his respect, you were always welcome at the table to share his wit and wisdom; but most of all his friendship.'' Karen Madden Kline remembered ``a morning after a wonderful snow that dawned bright, crystal-clear blue. . . . The painting room was almost steamy, windows fogged halfway up. . . . He talked about the snow and his remembrance of an ice storm that had turned the trees and phone lines into magic lace patterns and about how that morning he had looked out across a field near his home. He described the wonderful textures of snow on the variety of grasses and shrubs. It was as if he could turn the air into his canvas and let me see what he saw - those talks were his way of sensitizing the class . . . to draw from the inner self before beginning.'' So, as gratitude for all you have given as a teacher and friend, I record this homage, Roman. What you have shared will always be deeply valued. [Deseret News, no date given.]
