First ONE Hundred Years Members

This list of Signature Members* from the first hundred years of AWS is based on information presented in "History of the American Watercolor Society, the First 100 Years" by Ralph Fabri. The book was written in celebration of the Society's 100th Anniversary in 1966.

We are aware that the list may contain some inaccuracies. Terminal dates of membership are largely dates of death which can easily be off by a year. They are recorded in the Annual Catalog, published to coincide with the Annual Exhibition each spring. If a member died after publication, it would be recorded in the following year's catalog. To avoid further delay, we concurred that users in search of specific artists who discover an error will surely contact us, and we encourage you to do so. This reference material is a work in progress, and it is our goal to eventually have it current. It can never be complete as it is as alive as the Society itself. We hope to initiate other research sources; unfortunately, they will not be able to reach so far into our history.

We extend our thanks and appreciation to all who gave countless hours to this project.

Janet Walsh, President Emeritus

*Signature Members were referred to as "Active" until recently. Today, membership categories are Signature Member, one who has earned membership through competition in the Annual Exhibitions, and Sustaining Associate Member, a membership open to any and all who wish to be supportive of the Society and the art of watercolor painting. The Society holds each in high regard and actively pursues growth and development in both categories.
