This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born Naperville, IL, Feb. 8, 1866; died 1960. Sculptor in concrete. Farmer. Self-taught artist. Farmed south of Lucas until an automobile accident in 1937 forced an early retirement from farming. Over the next twenty years, he energetically occupied himself with the creation of hundreds of concrete shapes embellished with broken glass, stones and metal with which he decorated his whole farmstead. The site where he and his wife lived with their ten children is now under Lake Wilson, but more than a hundred pieces were moved and preserved by members of the Kansas Grassroots Art Association before the lake waters covered the site.
