Cresson traveling scholarship


Named for artist William Emlen Cresson, the scholarship was endowed at the Pennsylvania Academy by his parents in memory of their very promising young son who died at age 25. He entered the Pennsylvania Academy in 1860 at age 17 and was described as "a good painter, preferring poetical subjects and forever sketching". Among Cresson Scholarship winners are Daniel Garber, Walter Anderson, Clarence Henkle, Louis Betts, Barse Miller and Roy Nuse.
