Biography   William Congdon


William Congdon was born in Providence, Rhode Island on April 15, 1912 into a wealthy family.  He was raised in the best tradition of local society, attending dancing classes, summering near Newport, studying at St. Mark's School.   He studied at Yale University where he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree, Demetrious School of Sculpture,  and the Provincetown School of Art with Henry Hensche. He astounded his family by plunging headlong into the study of sculpture, becoming very expert so quickly that he was soon commissioned to do a series of garden figures and portraits.

This profitable career was interrupted in 1942 when Congdon joined the American Field Service, following the war from El Alamein to Belsen.    ...  Displaying 750 of 1518 characters.
