This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Canton, Missouri, Frederick HIbbard became a prominent sculptor of public works in Chicago, Illinois.  His studio was at 923 East 60th Street, next door to the former Midway Studios that sculptor Loredo Taft set up in the late 1920s.

Hibbard studied at Culver-Stockton Christian College in Canton, and at the State University of Missouri.  Then he went to Chicago to the Armour Institute, but his interest in sculpture led him to change his enrollment to the Art Institute.  With the backing and encouragement of Taft, he started his own studio, and one of his earliest commissions was the statue of Chicago mayor, Carter Harrison for Union Park in 1907.  Other works in Chicago are the Eagle fountains in the Congress Street Plaza on Michigan Avenue, the Greene Vardiman Black statue in Lincoln Park, and the Garden Girl in the Lincoln Park Conservatory.

Many of Hibbard's sculptures are Civil War related monuments and other statues of military and political figures including General Grant at Vicksburg, the Confederate Monument at Shiloh, and the Jefferson Davis statues for the capitols in Kentucky and Alabama.

For Hannibal, Missouri, Hibbard sculpted figures of Tom and Huckleberry Finn and the statue of Mark Twain, and at Racine, Wisconsin, he carved granite figures of Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln for a park where Mary had spent much time walking and reading during the summer after her husband's assassination.  The project, completed in 1943, utilized five tons of granite and took him two years. Hibbard said that he thought it was the first-ever executed of a President and his wife

Hibbard's first wife was Gladys Vance Hibbard, who died in 1930.  The next year, he married sculptor Elisabeth Haseltine.  Frederick HIbbard died in Chicago on December 12, 1950.
