Painter. Born in Marysville, CA on Aug. 24, 1864. Fonda's art studies were begun at the School of Design in San Francisco in the mid-1880s followed by study in Paris at Académie Julian under Laurens, Berg, and Benjamin-Constant. While in Paris he married May MacLeod in 1896. Upon returning to California, the couple settled in San Francisco. He was professor of drawing and painting at the Mark Hopkins Institute until 1899 and then taught in the public schools in Monterey for several years.
