Biography Richard Ellery
Richard Vanderford Ellery was born in Oct. 22, 1909 in Salem, Massachusetts. He moved with his family to Danvers, Massachusetts in 1915. He attended the Massachusetts College of Fine Arts in Boston (1928-32), later on doing graduate work in murals and portraits at the Museum School of Fine Arts, Boston. At some point, one of his teachers was the painter Philip Little.
Ellery signed up to do WPA work in 1935 and painted murals at Danvers Town Hall (with the assistance of his good friend Sol Levenson and another North Shore artist Thomas Baker). Four of his murals still hang in the Danvers Town Hall. The Town donated 9 murals to the Danvers Historic Society, but they are not on display as they are awaiting restoration.
