Frederick Wright (1893-1971?)

Little is known about Frederick Wright. He worked for the FAP in 1938 and his residence on the Work Card is East Hartland, CT. The Social Security Death Index lists Frederick Wright whose last known residence was East Hartland as having been born in 1893 and date of death as October 1971. Wright completed six easels for the FAP, four of which were rejected in February 1940. Of the remaining two, one easel entitled In the Pequots Country was allocated to the Uncas on Thames Sanatorium in Norwich. Another which was not allocated was entitled Berkshire Hills. A 1947 article in the New York Times listed a Frederick Wright as one of a number of artists and architects producing models for an exhibition at the Mortimer Leavitt Gallery entitled, Integration of the Arts.”
