This menu isn’t clearly dated, but the code “7-1-8” makes me suspect it is from 1958 as the prices aren’t high enough for 1968. Nor does the menu state what meal it was for, but the lack of a true table d’hôte menu makes me suspect it was for lunch. The menu does clearly say it was for the Texas Chief.
The cover painting was by Adolph Heinze. Like Frederic Mizzen, Heinze was from Chicago, but unlike Mizzen, who was primarily an advertising illustrator, Heinze was primarily a landscape painter. Long before he painted the scene on the cover of this menu, he was hired by Louis Hill to paint scenes in and around Glacier National Park (two of which appear in Call of the Mountains) as well as Blackfeet Indians such as Two Guns White Calf.
Ironically, considering my criticism of Mizzen’s painting, while the advertising nature of that work was subtle (but gimmicky), Heinze’s painting on this menu is an overt advertisement for Santa Fe. The only other painting of a Santa Fe streamlined train on one of its menus that I know of was the Hernando Villa painting of the “Meeting of the Chiefs,” and Villa, like Mizzen, was primarily an advertising illustrator.
