This biography from the Archives of AskART:

The following information was submitted in July of 2006 by Kathy Yellen:


Born on February 5, 1912 in New York City, the son of American West sculptor Alexander Phimister and Margaret Gerow Proctor.  His father's sculpting commissions took the family all over the United States and Europe, most notably Oregon, California, New York, Connecticut, and Italy and Belgium.  Proctor grew up assisting his father, thus developing his own talent for sculpting. 

He studied in New Yor City, continuing on at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, where he earned his B.F.A. degree.  He studied for two years at the American Academy in Rome, and won the Prix de Rome in 1934 for "We are the Dead". 

During World War II Proctor served as civilian for operations with the Office of Strategic Services of the United States Government, utilizing his knowledge of  the Italian language and culture. In 1941 he married Ann Blaney of Wilton, Connecticut, where the family made their home for the majority of the following  years, except for ca. 1965 to 1983, when they lived on the West Coast.

A student of American history, he was especially interested in the nation's first presidents, and created a 10-foot tall statue of General George Washington, to be placed at Valley Forge.

Gifford Proctor died at age 94, on June 16, 2006 at his home in Connecticut.
