Biography   Mary Jencques (Jenks) Coulter


Born in Newport, KY on Aug. 30, 1880. Mary Jencques was a pupil of Duveneck at the Cincinnati Art Academy. After her marriage to Fred Coulter in 1902, she moved to Chicago where she studied a variety of crafts (weaving, bookbinding, jewelry, pottery) at the AIC and was the first curator of etchings and engravings at that school. Upon returning from a tour of Europe, she earned a philosophy degree from the University of Chicago. In 1915 her husband died and she came to California where she served as chairman of the arts-crafts jury for the PPIE. After that time she appears to have divided her time between the East Coast and West Coast. She was a pupil of Lionel Walden in Hawaii for two seasons and later of Charles Hawthorne at Cape Cod.
