Comments: With Hornby and Thieme, he was an important founding member of the Rockport Colony. He was also a professional baseball player, perhaps the only artist to claim this distinction. He taught summer classes at his studio at Bearskin Neck, 1920-50. He painted at Fenway Studios, Boston, 1927-29 and later had a studio in E. Jamaica, Vt., gaining admiration for his winter landscapes. Also painted on Monhegan Island (Me.) Today, the Rockport AA is housed in his old studio. Positions: bd. mngrs., Gld Boston A.; bd. mngrs., North Shore AA, Rockport AA.
