Harper's Encyclopedia of United States History (ed. Benson Lossing), Kelly, James Edward 1855- (search)
Kelly, James Edward 1855- Sculptor; born in New York City, July 30, 1855; began studying art under Charles Parsons, of the art department of Harper & Brothers, in 1873, and subsequently at the Academy of Design; and in 1878 began his career as an illustrator in sculpture of personages and events prominent in American history by modelling the well-known statuette of Sheridan's ride, for which the general posed. In the following year he made a portrait bust of Thomas A. Edison with the first phonograph; and in 1882 produced the Paul Revere statue. During 1883-85 he was engaged on the five panels for the Monmouth Battle Monument, representing the Council of War at Hopewell; Ramsey defending his guns; Washington rallying his troops; Molly Pitcher; and Wayne's charge. In 1886 he completed Grant at Donelson, for which the general furnished sittings and details. For the Saratoga Monument he produced the panels, Arnold wounded in the trenches; and Schuyler transferring his plans to G

uly yours, O. W. Holmese. In childhood I became intimate with the household circle in which Oliver Wendell Holmes was born and bred, the intimacy coming from the fact that my father's house stood next to it and that Dr. Holmes's nephew, Charles Parsons,--afterward Professor Parsons of Brown University,--was my especial playmate. The place was, like many country parsonages of that day, practically a farmhouse with its accompanying acres. It included the ground now covered by several colleProfessor Parsons of Brown University,--was my especial playmate. The place was, like many country parsonages of that day, practically a farmhouse with its accompanying acres. It included the ground now covered by several college buildings in the neighborhood and it extended over the playgrounds now called Holmes's Field. There were cultivated fields and many outbuildings, sheltering horses and cattle; and one of the happiest spots to us was the corn-barn, raised on high posts, where we shelled corn on rainy days. In the house our favorite playing place was the garret described by Dr. Holmes in his Professor at the breakfast table. It was in reference to this garret that he wrote, The worst of a modern stylish man

dgeport, and was constantly shown to strangers as a curiosity; and that not far from it stood our one artist's studio, that of Washington Allston. The children of Cambridge had the increased enjoyment of life that comes from country living. The farm of our old minister, Dr. Abiel Holmes, was next to our house, occupying all the ground now covered by the Hemenway Gymnasium, the Scientific School, the Jefferson Laboratory, and Holmes Field. There, with the dear old doctor's grandson, Charles Parsons, we boys of Professors' Row had the rural delights of husking corn and riding on the haycart. There were farms all over town,—all the way up the West Cambridge (Arlington) road, and also between Old Cambridge and Boston, with an occasional outbreak of ropewalks, spreading, like sprawling caterpillars, through what is now Ward Four. There were also some well-preserved revolutionary fortifications,—one remarkably fine one on what is now Putnam Avenue,—but these have now unfortunately va<

married from our house. It is amusing to remember that Professor Longfellow once asked me, many years after, what his hero's name was. My special playmate, Charles Parsons, was a nephew of Dr. Oliver Wendell Holmes, who was in those years studying in Europe; and in the elder Dr. Holmes's house Charles Parsons and I often tumbledCharles Parsons and I often tumbled about in a library, -indeed, in the very same library where the Autocrat had himself performed the process he recommended. Under these circumstances it seems very natural that a child thus moulded should have drifted into a literary career. The period here described was one when children were taught to read very early, and thiI, sitting in silence on a cliff of Rhodes, watcht the sun as he swang his golden censer athwart the heavens?

college town is, after all, very much like dwelling just outside of a remarkably large glass beehive, where one can watch all day long the busy little people inside; can see them going incessantly to and fro at their honey-making, pausing occasionally to salute or sting one another — and all without the slightest peril to the beholder. Life becomes rich in this safe and curious contemplation, and this is a pursuit which every boy in a college town begins very early. It was thus that Charles Parsons and I, from the time we were allowed to go alone in the street, studied the little academical world on whose edge we dwelt. At ten years of age, it is certain, we could repeat the list of every undergraduate class alphabetically, and prided ourselves on knowing every student by sight. This was not so incredible as it would now seem, for the classes rarely had more than fifty each, the whole college counting little more than half as many as a single class now numbers. All these youn
