ARTIST BIO:
William Henry Chandler (1854-1928) was born on June 9, 1854 in New York City. One of seven children born to Mr. & Mrs. Asa Byram Chandler, he lived while growing up with his deeply religious Christian family in Elizabeth NJ, East Orange NJ, and Summit NJ. For his entire life, he retained his deeply religious convictions. William displayed an interest in art during his youth but had other interests as well. A hunting accident early in his life left him with a life-long limp.

As a young man, Chandler moved to Chicago and obtained artistic work as a cameo engraver in a pearl button manufacturing business. While in Chicago he met and married his first wife, Jennie Freeman. Together they had three children (Kathleen, Annabel, and Nellie). Tragedy struck the Chandler household hard as Nellie died when only a few months old. And then Chandler's wife Jennie died shortly thereafter from typhoid fever.

With his wife gone and two remaining children to raise, Chandler returned to northern New Jersey where he lived for the rest of his life and raised his daughters with the help of his sister.
