This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born near Windsor, VT in 1816. Shaw was raised on a farm and at 14 was apprenticed to a cabinetmaker. Early in life he became interested in art and became adept at portrait painting and photography. Arriving in San Francisco with the Gold Rush in 1849, he mined briefly and then opened a daguerreotype gallery in San Francisco. In 1854 he moved north to Ferndale where he established a farm, acted as postmaster, justice of the peace, and coroner. Considered the founder of Ferndale, he died there in 1872. In: Bancroft Library (UC Berkeley).
