Biographical / Historical:
Sylvia Shaw Judson (1897-1978) was a sculptor and writer active in Chicago, Illinois. Her work Bird Girl received popular attention after her death.

Sylvia Shaw Judson, who went by Sylvia Haskins in her personal life, was the daughter of prominent architect Howard Van Doren Shaw and Frances Shaw. She studied with Albin Polasek at the Art Institute of Chicago and went to Paris in 1920 to continue her studies under Antoine Bourdelle at the Academy Grande Chaumiere.

Judson's sculpture often depicts children and animals. Notable works include Little Gardener which was included in Rachel "Bunny" Mellon's design for the White House Rose Garden, and Bird Girl in Bonaventure Cemetery in Savannah, Georgia.

As an adult, Judson joined the Society of Friends and became an active participant in the church. She died in 1978 in Lake Forest, Illinois.
Separated Materials:
The Archives of American Art also holds microfilm of material lent for microfilming on reels 4189-4190, including biographical material, family and personal correspondence primarily between Sylvia Judson and her parents and husband, travel journals, writings, sketchbooks and sketches, printed material, and photos of sculpture study. The material was returned to the lender after microfilming and some was subsequently donated to the Chicago Historical Society. Loaned materials are not described in the collection container inventory.
Provenance:
The Sylvia Shaw Judson papers were donated by her daughter, Alice Judson Ryerson in 1979. The material microfilmed on reels 1490-1495 was initially lent to the Archives for microfilming by the artist's daughter and subsequently given as a gift.
