Biography   Madison Colby


The following information is from Steven Branting, Institutional Historian of Lewis-Clark State College in Lewiston, Idaho.

Evidence is now very strong that Madison Colby studied with Thomas Ball, both in Boston and in Florence, Italy.
 
I am now working on finding a photograph of Colby.
