This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A teacher, craftsperson, and sculptor of animal subjects and portrait heads including medallions*, Genevieve Hamlin had a distinguished teaching career:  She taught in the Newark, New Jersey School of Fine and Industrial Arts from 1926 to 1943.  Then she lived in Putney, Vermont for several years and became founder of Putney Pottery at the Putney School.  From 1949 to 50, she was a teacher at Hartwick College in Oneonta, New York, and from 1950 to 1958, was instructor of sculpture and pottery at Oneonta High School. 

After that, having lived in Putney, Maine, and Harpursville, New York, she settled in New York City where she had been born. 

The daughter of Alfred Hamlin who was Director of the School of Architecture at Columbia University, she was an ardent feminist and pacifist.  She was a pupil in Paris of Abastenia Saint Eberle, Henry Dropsy, and Andre L'Hotel, and also studied at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, New York.

She was a member of the National Association of Women Painters and Sculptors", the American Numismatic Society*, National Association of Women Artists*,* Sculptors Guild Inc., and Philadelphia Ten Painters*.
