Dr. Mud Scab (2013)

This portrait of Highly Esteemed Doctor of Satellite Technologies, Mud Scab, was created by a fictional Townsperson to honor Mud Scab's scholarly achievements. During her lifetime, Mud Scab was bestowed with many honorary degrees and titles. To just name a few, she served as First Minister of Chemistry, worked tirelessly in her post as Top Economist, and shared her knowledge of Satellite Technology during radio broadcasts. It comes as no surprise that many a song has been written about this great woman and her achievements. May the cassettes of her lectures never end up on a West Field dirt heap.
