Biography William Beauley
Born in Joliet, Illinois, William Beauley became a New York City architect and artist. He began his career in Chicago, working for several architects in the early 1890s on the staff of D.H. Burnham for the World's Fair. Of this experience, he wrote: "I was the youngest draftsman there and was placed in a private atelier under Mr. Henry Bacon, who has just finished the Lincoln Memorial in Washington. At his suggestion I went abroad, following the work on the Fair and through an acquaintance I formed the friendship of Maurice Yvon, architect of the French Government. I was afforded the opportunity of studying with him."
In Paris, he associated with painters, and began sketching with them, which led to a life-long interest in painting.
