Biography   Thomas Tousey


The following is from Alice Carter, Art Writer and Professor, Department of Design, San Jose State University

Thomas Sanford Tousey was born in Kansas and came east to become an artist. According to his draft registration card, by 1918 he was living at 2297 Sedgwick Ave, New York City.

The story about Howard Pyle "discovering" Tousey, encouraging him in art and recruiting him for his school is true, although apparently Pyle regretted the decision finding the young man to be "conceited" and according to a biography of Pyle …"emotionally unstable." (From Howard Pyle: Imagining An American School of Art, pg. 102)
