James Turnbull was awarded two mural projects funded by the Treasury Section of Fine Arts(TSFA). In 1939 he completed, The Lead Belt, for the Fredericktown, MO Post Office, and in 1940, Loading Cattle for the Jackson, MO Post Office. The latter is now the Chamber of Commerce building, and the mural has been moved to the new post office serving Jackson.
