Morris Henry Hobbs

Hobbs was born in Rockford, Illinois and studied drawing at the Art Institute of Chicago and architecture at the Illinois Institute of Technology. During World War I he enlisted with the American Expeditionary Forces where he became ill from an epidemic flu. The illness damaged his hearing and left him almost totally deaf. After his discharge from the service he worked as an architect in Chicago, and later, Toledo, Ohio. Being unemployed after the stock market crash, he decided to become an artist because of his skills as a draftsman. Hobbs studied printmaking in France and became a competent etcher. After returning to the United States he decided to take residence and maintain a studio in New Orleans where he documented the architecture and people of the old French Quarter. His work is represented in Tulane University, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Art Institute of Chicago, New York Public Library, Toledo Museum of Art, and the Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco.
