Biography from Whistler House Museum of Art:
The following is from Peter Kostoulakos, ISA ˜ Fine Art Consultant www.pkart.com

Lee Sturges — etcher — was born on August 13, 1865 in Chicago, IL but the exact time and place of death is unknown — possibly 1954 in Melrose Park, IL where his last known residence was. In 1929 he was living at 280 Cottage Hill Avenue in Elmhurst, IL.

His art training took place at the Art Institute of Chicago; the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts; and the Chicago Academy of Design. Sturges held memberships with the Society of American Etchers in Brooklyn, NY; the California Printmaker's Society; the American Federation of the Arts; and he was president of the Chicago Society of Etchers.

Sturges won the Logan Medal at the Art Institute of Chicago exhibit in 1923.

Sturges' work is in the collections of the Whistler House Museum of Art in Lowell, MA; the Art Institute of Chicago; the California State Library; and the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC.
