This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A teacher of art, painter, and art historian, Agnes Addison was born in Philadelphia, earned a B.A. degree from Wellesley in Massachusetts, and an M.A. of Arts at the University of Pennsylvania.  With Carnegie Fellowships*, she studied both at Harvard and at the Sorbonne in Paris.

From 1931 to 1932, she taught at the College of Industrial Arts (now Texas Women's University) in Denton, Texas; from 1934 to 1941, she was a teacher at the University of Pennsylvania; and from 1941 to 1942, was teaching at Randolph-Macon Women's College in Virginia.

As an art historian she wrote Early American Gothic and Pennsylvania Portraits, both published in 1940.  She also gave many book reviews and contributed articles to magazines.

Professional memberships included the College Art Association of America, American Society of Architecture Historians, and the Philadelphia Art Alliance* with whom she also exhibited paintings.

When she died, she was living in Woods Hole, Massachusetts.  In addition to residences during her teaching years, she lived in Mount Vernon, New York.
