(Family Tree Maker Online: GenealogyLibrary.com: Bosworth Genealogy Vol II, Page141) ================================================================== Source: Beth Hurd. Johnston, RI USA, beth@@the-hurds.com,http://www.the-hurds.com History of the state of Rhode Island and Providence PlantationsBiographical NY: The American Historical Society, Inc. 1920 pp. 423 - 424: 'COLONEL HEZEKIAH ANTHONY DYER -- In Rhode Island, Colonel H. Anthony Dyer, placed by the leading critical authorities among the ablest exponents of landscape art, is known and appreciated not only for eminence among American artists but for a type of citizenship of constant service for the public good. Colonel Dyer is a member of the family of proud place in Rhode Island and New England history, and the chapter written in his day and generation, adding achievement in a new field, is well added to the family record. Colonel H. Anthony Dyer, son of Governor Elisha and Nancy Anthony (Viall)Dyer, was born in Providence, R. I., October 28, 1872. He obtained his general education in St. Paul's School and Brown University, leaving the former institution in 1890, and graduating from the latter in 1894, with the degree of Bachelor of Science. He followed art study in France, Italy,and Holland, and has made landscape painting his field of endeavor. From1897 to 1900 he was executive secretary to his father, then governor of Rhode Island, and was aide-de-camp on his staff, with the rank of Colonel, during the same period, throughout the Spanish War. Numerous pictures by Mr. Dyer are on permanent exhibition in the Corcoran Gallery, of Washington, D. C., the Rhode Island School of Design, and the Providence Art Club, while many of his paintings are in private collections. He is universally regarded as a representative American painter in water color of landscape subjects, a talented artist whose work has attracted wide attention and strongly favorable comment. He isa member and ex-president of the Providence Water Color Club, member and from 1904 to 1914 president of the Providence Art Club, and a former member of the Boston Water Color Society, and the Boston Art Club. He is well known as a lecturer on art and travel topics, and fills many engagements of this nature throughout the East. In 1919 he was honoured with the degree of A. M. from Brown University, and he was also made an honourary member of Phi Beta Kappa. An inherited love for political activity and party affairs has given him keen interest in the political situation in his native State. He has never entered public life as an office holder, but from 1916 to 1919 was president of the Republican Club of Rhode Island, a loyal supporter of his party, and highly regarded in party councils. Colonel Dyer was chairman of the speakers' bureau for the Food Administration of Rhode Island early in the United States' participation in the war, and was afterwards made, by the Council of Defense, chairman of the speakers' bureau for the State of Rhode Island, the two later being merged. He was appointed by Governor Beeckman a director of the Community Councils of Defense for Rhode Island and became a member of the Council for Rhode Island of the 'four-minutemen', working in cooperation with the Bureau of Public Information. He was also director of speakers of the United War Work Activities campaign,and during the war he gave without limit of his services and ability in the publicity campaigns for the various agencies of victory, the government, social service, and welfare organizations. His previous experience as a lecturer stood him in good stead and he was particularlyeffective in addressing large audiences. Throughout all of his war work he enjoyed the confidence of the people of his State to a marked degree, and his leadership met with a ready response in every relation of the war. His work, since the victory of the allied cause, continues in his chairmanship for Rhode Island of the Fatherless Children of France, a philanthropic organization whose name bespeaks its purpose. Colonel Dyer is a junior warden of St. Stephen's Episcopal Church, and is an active worker in his denomination, a member of the standing committee of the Episcopal church of Rhode Island, and in 1919 a deputy from Rhode Island to the general convention of the Episcopal church at Detroit. By that body he was appointed to the Army and Navy Commission. He is a member of the Society of Colonial Wars, the Hope Club, and the Rotary Club. His fraternity, to which he was elected during his college years,is the Sigma Chapter of Psi Upsilon. Colonel Dyer married, in 1899, Charlotte Osgood Tilden, daughter of the late Henry and Isabel (Congdon) Tilden, and they are the parents of one daughter, Nancy Anthony, who is studying art to keep up the family tradition.' to see some images by Nancy A.

In fact, he was playing in a band at a dance in the Town Hall the night I was born.' 'As a young man, he worked with his father as an apprentice druggist,later passing the State Boards to become a registered pharmacist. Myfather entered into partnership with Henry Forsyth and they continued inbusiness in the same building, (the building bearing the Dyer name on the corner of Grant and Cedar Streets[in Houston Village]) where the Bedore Drug Store now operates.
