Biography from Williams American Art Galleries:
Sybil Davis Emerson, painter, sculptor, muralist, writer and educator was born in Worcester, Massachusetts in 1892.  She attended Ohio State University, where she earned her Bachelors in Art and Science; the Art Students League in New York; and the Académie Falguiere.

She studied with Armin Hansen and Clayton Sumner Price in Monterey.  In California she was a resident of Pasadena (1918-19) and San Francisco (1922-24), where she taught at Lowell High School, before moving to Berkeley in 1932.

Around 1940 Emerson was living in New York City.  Later she settled in State College, Pennsylvania where she taught art education at Pennsylvania State University from 1942 to 1956. During this time she also taught summer courses at the University of Southern California in 1952 and at the California College of Arts & Crafts in 1955.

Emerson retired to McMinnville, Oregon in 1959 where she remained until her passing in 1980.
