Abraham Wolfe Davidson emigrated from Russia to the United States when he was a teenager. He studied art in both countries and became a sculptor, painter and art teacher. Davidson taught for 18 years at Brenau College in Gainesville, Georgia. His sculptures can be found in numerous private and public collections, primarily in South Carolina and Georgia. Davidson had a long affiliation with Clemson College/University where he enrolled as a special student in the 1930s while working on a statue of Thomas Green Clemson. He later completed several busts of Clemson presidents and faculty. For additional materials, please consult the complete guide to his personal papers held by Special Collections and Archives.
