Biography from Birger Sandzen Memorial Gallery:
William Rutherforde, Jr. was born in Highland Park, Illinois on June 23, 1931. He attended grammar and high school in Highland Park. He earned a B. A. degree in Political Science from Gettysburg College, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania in 1953, and undertook graduate work at the University of Wisconsin in 1953-54.

Bill served in the U.S. Army Counterintelligence Corps from 1954 through 1957. In 1959 he worked as an insurance agent for Marsh and McLennan, Inc., in Wichita.  He left the insurance company to devote full-time to his art and community interests.

During his youth he and his family made frequent Saturday and Sunday afternoon outings which led to visits to airports, railroad yards, shipyards, science museums and planetariums.  He also remembers concerts at the Metropolitan Opera, New York Philharmonic and several jazz concerts at Carnegie Hall.

Bill is recognized for his kinetic and architectural renderings in metal.  Many of his metal sculptures are in brass and copper.  His reflections on personal images from his youth and later years are refined with an element of design.  His sense of humor is evident in his metal sculpture.

He has evolved in his designing and today works with “lost wax” casting for bronze wind bells.   

He is a past president of the Artists Guild of Wichita.  His sculpture has been shown regionally and in several juried national competitive exhibitions.
