Eugenie Barron was born in 1952, growing up in St. Louis, Missouri. She studied art and anthropology at the University of Missouri, Columbia campus before becoming a piano tuner/technician as well as studying hand papermaking as a craft and an artist. In 1979 she moved to New York City to study with Douglass Morse Howell and further her interest in papermaking. There she developed her skills, lecturing, curating, and teaching, primarily in the city and around the Hudson Valley of NY, where she has maintained several homes and working studios. She is currently semi-retired in Catskill, NY, yet she tries to maintain a connection with her contemporaries in both papermaking and the world of piano technology. Since beginning retirement she has been deviating into Garage Band and singing, which is quite an endeavor, given her voice and computer skills.

This beater was built by Michael Paulin in 1981, based upon measurements and photos of Howell beater #3. The plexiglas tub was unique to Howell, who wanted to be able to observe the fibers during the beating process.
