We just got back from Hanover New Hampshire where we visited Dartmouth University. Ed's was speaking there. Well, as he was speaking, I bumbled around the city and school. One of the things I found were "The Orozco Murals".
These were painted between 1933 and 1935. Clemente Orozco painted the in fresco technique. He was a contemporary of Diego Garcia and painted with the same style and focus on ordinary people and the exploitation of Latin America by Europeans.
I captured these parts below.

Next to her is a panel called Hispano-America. You can see the money takers smelling gold at the bottom of the scene and Generals taking over past that.
The Anglo-Americas versus Hispano-America difference refers to the two ways that America was used by Europeans. The English, French and Dutch sent settlers to America to inhabit the land.
