It was a life-long relationship. And even in her later years, Burton-Lyles and Anderson kept up through letters after Anderson moved to the West Coast.&nbsp;</p> Tue, 15 Jul 2014 16:25:09 +0000 Meridee Duddleston 7481 at http://wrti.org How a Mentor Inspired A Life In Music: Blanche Burton-Lyles Keeps Marian Anderson’s Memory Alive Painted Metaphors of the Ancient Maya--Juxtapose--The Elusive Hindemith--Marian Anderson Museum http://wrti.org/post/painted-metaphors-ancient-maya-juxtapose-elusive-hindemith-marian-anderson-museum <p>Jason Peifer visits 'Painted Metaphors: Pottery and Politics of the Ancient Maya' at the Penn Museum.
