A photograph of the Christmas play and Santa Claus puppets at the Children's Division of the Nashville Public Library, circa 1954. The puppeteers in the performance, pictured from left to right, are Raymond Tichenor, Gwendolyn Seay, and Tom Tichenor. Tom Tichenor began his career as a puppeteer when he was an elementary school student at Tarbox School in Nashville, Tennessee. In 1938, while attending Hume-Fogg High School, he staged a production of Puss in Boots for the Children's Department of the Nashville Public Library Main Library, beginning a fifty-year relationship with the children of Nashville. At his retirement from the Library in 1988, he donated many of his original marionettes and puppets to continue the legacy of bringing the world of puppetry to children. Photographed by Jerome Drown. Forms part of the Nashville Room Historic Photographs Collection. 1 photograph : b & w ; 8 x 10 in.
