Biography from Dedham Historical Society


HENRY SYLVESTER TALBOT, son of Sylvester W. and Margaret (Guild) Talbot, was born in Dedham, Massachusetts, August 15, 1836, and died in Dedham, April 9, 1924.  Talbot attended Dedham Public Schools.  In early life he learned the use of engraving tools and made many wood engravings which he printed himself.  He did some of his engraving work in Boston.   In later years he became a marine painter, for which he became widely known.  In his obituary (The Dedham Transcript, April 12, 1924) it was noted that he was a very quiet and unassuming individual, and highly respected in Dedham.  He lived at 410 Washington Street, Dedham, with his sister Mary L. Talbot, who died two days after him.  He is buried in the Village Cemetery in Dedham.
The Dedham Historical Society has a substantial number of his works, many of which were acquired during the year of his death.
