About the Cover

The photograph on the cover is from a collection, Shenandoah: Views of Our National Park, by attorney Hullihen Williams Moore, who recently retired from a seat on the Virginia Corporation Commission. The photo, Big Meadows Pine, Fog and Ice, was taken in 1991.

Moore’s work will be exhibited June 16–September 8, 2006, at the U.S. Department of the Interior Museum, 1849 C Street NW in Washington, D.C. The museum is open to the public without charge Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m.–4:30 p.m. and the third Saturday of each month from 1–4 p.m. Adults must present photo identification to be admitted. For more information, call (202) 208-4743.

For a review of Moore’s book, see the June/July 2005 edition of Virginia Lawyer. The book is published by the University of Virginia Press. Books and prints can be ordered at
