Biographical Note:

Alice Hudson was born on October 30, 1922, in Buffalo, New York, the daughter of Harry Francis Hudson (1877-1963) and Alice (Lockwood) Hudson (1882-1976). Her childhood was spent in Orchard Park, New York, with her older sister, Sarah (aka Sally, 1916-1988), where she was known affectionately as “Kiko.”  She attended Antioch College in Ohio, graduated from the Albright Art School in Buffalo, New York, and received a bachelor of science degree in art education from Buffalo College for Teachers.

Alice married Clement (Clem) A. Herman, Jr., of Williston Park, Nassau County, New York, in 1943.  Clem was born in1923, served in the U.S. Marine Corps in WWII and Korea, becoming a major.  He died in 1990 and is buried in Calverton National Cemetery, Calverton, New York.  The couple’s daughter, Elizabeth (Liz) Bronson, was born in 1946.

In 1947 she moved with her husband and daughter to Long Island where she continued her studies at Hofstra University and at Southampton College. It was at this time Alice began working in papier-mâché and with fibers, and stitching small figures. Alice taught art in North Country Elementary School, Stony Brook, New York. She was affiliated with the Art Barn Ltd. in Stony Brook, where she taught classes for children and exhibited her work in Art Barn exhibits and at the Gallery North in Setauket, New York.  She also taught children’s art classes at the Museum of Stony Brook.

Following her divorce, Hudson moved to Norwich, New York, in 1983 to be near her sister. She continued to work with papier-mâché, fibers and other natural materials right up until the day of her death, March 21, 2013.

Alice Hudson’s work was shown at Gallery North on Long Island, Gallery 53 in Cooperstown, New York, and the Chenango County Council of the Arts Gallery in Norwich.  In addition to her many works in private collections, she is represented in the permanent collections of two museums: “The Cultural Center with the Mysterious Locked Room” was acquired by the Museum of the City of New York, and “A Palace for Wednesday” was acquired by the Mingei International Museum in San Diego, California.  The Mingei published a book describing the museum’s exhibit of Alice’s work in 2008.  See also: http://alicehudsonsfantasyworld.blogspot.com/external link

Scope and Content Note:

These papers are organized into four series documenting chiefly the artistic endeavors of Alice Hudson. The first series documents her personal and artistic life.  The second series contains family papers, primarily of her father, Harry Francis Hudson, and her uncle, Chauncey Hudson, who were prominent architects in Buffalo, New York. The third series documents the artist’s work, with a number of files related to “A Palace for Wednesday,” “The Cultural Center with the Mysterious Locked Room,” and “The Procession.”  The fourth series consists of oversize items.  The papers include correspondence, biographic material, artist’s notes, published material, photographs and slides; a video recording; scrapbook pages, and photograph albums.
