Francis Wharton Stork
Cast bronze portrait bust on wood base of Dr. Charles Wharton Stork (1881-1971) by his son Francis Wharton Stork. Dr. Stork was a Philadelphia-born poet, playwright, literary critic, editor, and educator. He served on the board of directors of the Athenaeum of Philadelphia for forty-nine years, from 1919 to 1968. This portrait bust was given to the Athenaeum by the sculptor after he and his brother and sister created the Charles Wharton Stork lecture endowment at the Athenaeum.
