This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Halifax, Virginia, Edith Parsons studied at the Art Students League in New York with John Twachtman, Daniel Chester French, and George Bernard. Her specialty was memorial fountains including ones in John Galloway Public Park in Memphis, Tennessee, in St. Paul, Minnesota, and Summit, New Jersey. She also did several portrait busts and animal figures. From 1908 to 1933, she exhibited regularly at the National Academy of Design.

Her work, " Frog Baby" is the focal point of the museum of small sculpture in Brookgreen Gardens, Murrell's Inlet, SC.
