The Artistic Genius of Will H. Bradley

Letter to Henry Turner Bailey

A letter written by Will H. Bradley to Henry Turner Bailey, dated November 12, 1897, with Bradley apologizing to Bailey for his having to write Bradley again in reminder to return drawings, which Bradley attests in the letter that he mailed yesterday. Bradley mentions a magazine he hopes will be published again, though he is unable to give a definitive time.

Bailey was born in Scituate, Mass., and was educated at Massachusetts Betts State Normal Art School. He taught drawing in Boston night schools, and was supervisor of drawing in Lowell, Mass. From 1887 to 1903 he was agent for the promotion of industrial drawing for the Massachusetts Board of Education; from 1903 to 1917, director of the Chautauqua School of Arts and Crafts and editor of School Arts Magazine; from 1917 to 1930, dean and director of the Cleveland School of Art.
