Miss Hatton died Thursday, June 27, 1991, at Asbury-Salina Regional Medical Center. She was born Oct. 19, 1901, in Bunker Hill.

She received a bachelor's degree in design from Kansas University in 1926, and a bachelor's degree of fine arts and painting from KU in 1933. She received a master's of fine arts from Cranbrook Academy of Art, Bloomfield Hills, Mich.

Miss Hatton taught design at KU from 1926 to 1935.

In 1937 she moved to Fort Collins, Colo., to teach at Colorado State University, where she organized the art department. The art gallery at CSU was named after her.

She moved to Salina in 1970 after retiring.
