Biography from Spencer Jon Helfen Fine Arts:
A Colorado native, Parker Hall came to California in about 1927 to study at the California School of Fine Arts and served as an assistant to painter Ralph Stackpole. Later, both Hall and Stackpole worked on the Coit Tower murals, which were commissioned by the Depression-era Public Works of Art Project.

Hall’s contribution to Coit Tower was a representation of collegiate sports featuring teams as well as individual athletes in action. One portion of the mural, which appears over the arch of a Tower doorway, depicts long-time rivals Stanford and the University of California, Berkeley, competing on the gridiron. A mass of Cardinal color accented by a white Stanford “S” appears in the stands behind the players. The mural also depicts individual figures engaged in such sports as badminton, tennis, swimming, archery, basketball and baseball.

Although Hall was interested in painting and lithography, he primarily was a sculptor; therefore, he considered his Coit Tower work to be of no great personal significance. Some of his publicly owned works include a lithograph now held in the Library of Congress, and a carved wood figure at Vallejo Junior High School in Vallejo, California. Hall and his wife, painter Maxine Albro, another of the Coit Tower muralists, spent their later years in Carmel, California.
