This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in East Eddington, ME in 1851. Broad settled in Berkeley, CA in 1877. The next year he was elected to the first board of trustees of the newly incorporated town and served as town marshal. In 1880 he went into business as a building contractor and designer, and became well known in Oakland and Berkeley for his Eastlake-style cottages. Some of his buildings in Berkeley include the Whittier School, LeConte School, and Columbus School. He was a highly successful businessman when he took up oil painting as an avocation. A self-taught artist, he received criticism from his good friend Wm Keith with whom he made many sketching expeditions into the Sierra Nevada and surrounding country. His palette invariably held his own shade of "apple green." It was his custom to paint a landscape to be hung in a certain spot in a house he had finished. Broad died at his home at 2030 Bancroft Way on March 25, 1930. In: Odd Fellows Temple and Elks Club (Berkeley); Oakland Museum.
