Helen Heighton Thomas was my great-aunt, and the family did say that she had created the design for the Jefferson Nickel, but on Wikipedia.com, I just found evidence that is not so. Maybe she entered the contest?
From Wikipedia : When the Buffalo nickel had been struck for 25 years and could be replaced without an act of Congress, the Mint moved quickly to replace it. Although the Fraser design is popular today among numismatists, it did not enjoy that status in 1938, and there was no public outcry at the decision. In January 1938, the Mint announced an open competition for the new nickel design, with the winner to receive a prize of $1,000. Anticipating the 1943 bicentennial of Jefferson's birth, competitors were to place his portrait on the obverse, and a depiction of his house Monticello on the reverse.
On April 24, Felix Schlag was announced as the winner. His design featured the portrayal of Jefferson which would be used on the nickel until 2004, closely conforming to the former president's bust by sculptor Jean-Antoine Houdon, which is to be found in Boston's Museum of Fine Arts. However, the model differs from the nickel that was struck for circulation because it featured a view of Monticello from an angle, and a style of lettering officials did not like; Schlag was required to change both. Either through a misunderstanding or an oversight, Schlag did not include his initials in the design; they would not be added until 1966. Production began on October 3, 1938; they were released into circulation on November 15. According to contemporary accounts, the Jefferson nickel was initially hoarded, and it was not until 1940 that it was commonly seen in circulation.

Thank you ever so much for the transfer. I should have my new 'puter soon and be up and running once again.

Since you are not related to John nor his wife, Ida May #116303195, and I am (cousins), would you consider a transfer to me for management and linking to other relatives? They are in Maple Grove Cemetery, Ravenna, Portage Co, OH.
As you probably already, you continue to own credit for the memorial forever. I know there are "guidelines" for transfers but I prefer to transfer those who aren't blood related to me to a relative that is. If I have anyone on my list that you are related to just let me know.
Thank you for creating the memorial and for considering my request. I cannot make my request through the edit button because I am temporarily without email capability. My 'puter is old and I am in the process of getting a new one.
Thanks once again. Regards....Tunie #46536984
