Frank N. Wilcox Autobiography

Frank Nelson Wilcox (1887-1964) was a famous Cleveland painter. Here are some selections from an unpublished autobiography by Frank N. Wilcox.  The manuscript can be found in the Frank N. Wilcox Papers, 1906-1976 at the Archives of American Art at the Smithsonian Institution.  Wilcox writes that it was “written primarily to record the circumstances of the Art World in the City of Cleveland during my lifetime and from the point of view of the participant.”  What follows are transcriptions of those selections I thought interesting enough at the time to copy.
