Harvey Ball
Amy Benoit (04/25/2008)
Hello, I am a teacher in the city of Worcester as well as a life-long resident of Worcester and have always loved hearing about Harvey Ball. I am looking for information about him that isn't currently listed on Wikipedia, Google and the like. For instance, I know that he grew up on the corner of Hyland and Park Ave, where the Price Chopper is presently standing and that his father was a candy salesman. but I'd like to know more. If you have any information about his formative years would you please forward. As part of the city's curricula, I like to provide my students with facts about important people from their city. Talking about Harvey's accomplishments and life will help the kids connect. Thank you, Amy Benoit

H. Ball landscape painting

I have a landscape painting with a signature H. Ball. Could anyone tell me how I could prove this is a painting by Harvey Ball or someone else? I do have a photo of the painting that I could attach.

Harvey knew I loved rainbows and that I was always looking up at the sky. The day he passed away I was in Washington state. Earlier in the day I had passed a store with a "smiley" on the sign. I smiled as I thought of Harvey and reminded myself to send him a get well card as my best friend Sandra wrote me that he wasn't feeling well. Later as I was coming out of the gardens near the Hiram Chittenden Locks I looked up into the sky and there was an enormous full rainbow that was spectacular. Later when I got home I had a message from my friend Sandra notifing me that Harvey was no longer with us. I like to think it was his way of telling me good-bye. He was a very special man and I will never forget his gentleness or kindness. He was truly an angel who walked on this earth. Harvey I miss you!!!!!
