This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in NYC on March 13, 1904, the son of noted historian and author, Henry D. Sedgwick. Francis was brought to Santa Barbara, CA as an infant and was educated there at the Cate School. He further studied at the Groton School in Massachusetts and graduated from Harvard University in 1926. During his college years, Sedgwick acquired the nickname "Duke" which remained with him throughout his lifetime. After college, he worked in international banking, but abandoned this line of work in 1932 to study painting under DeWitt Lochman in New York and sculpture for five years in the studio of Herman MacNeil. In the late 1930s he returned to Santa Barbara where he bought a large lemon ranch and, when not working the ranch, produced many portrait busts and sculpture commissions. A prominent civic leader and benefactor in Santa Barbara, during the 1960s he served as vice-president of the Santa Barbara Museum of Art. Although he did some painting, he is best known for his sculpture. Sedgwick died in Santa Barbara on Oct. 24, 1967. Exh: Montecito Country Club, 1940. In: Triton Museum (Santa Clara); Laurel Hill Memorial Monument (SF); American Field Service Monument (London); Earl Wilson Showgrounds (Santa Barbara); Robert Frost plaque (SF); Cabrillo Senior High School (Lompoc).
