SAN ANTONIO, TX, March 13, 2012 /Stanford Who’s Who/ — Stanford Who’s Who is proud to welcome LaVerne Lewis Britt to the prestigious ranks of leading professionals as a result of her exceptional effort in the arts. As President of the Wilson Pottery Foundation, as well as throughout her brilliant professional career, LaVerne has consistently displayed the passion, vision, and dedication necessary to be considered among the elite.
Incorporated in 1999, the Wilson Pottery Foundation is a 501(3)(C) nonprofit organization which was formed by the Historical Committee of the Hiram & James Wilson Family Reunion to revitalize the rich heritage left by the Patriarchs: Hiram, James, and Wallace Wilson. Their mission is to research, acquire, and preserve that part of Texas History made by the Wilson potters during the 19th Century.
LaVerne, who is the great, great granddaughter of the phenomenal potter, Hiram Wilson, is responsible for managing all major aspects of the foundation. She is also the author of In Praise of Hiram Wilson: The Story of a 19th Century Guadalupe County Potter, which chronicles the life and deeds and offers praise for all he accomplished for himself and the community after being born into slavery.
