Adeline Pond Adams
Adeline Valentine Pond Adams (1859–1948) was an American writer and the wife of Herbert Adams. The chief subjects of her writings were American fine artists and art history. She published at least seven texts. On December 14, 1930, she was awarded a Special Medal of Honor by the National Sculpture Society.
Adams was a member of the Cornish (NH) Equal Suffrage League.
Adams's seven published texts include: "The spirit of American sculpture," "Daniel Chester French, sculptor," "Childe Hassam," "John Quincy Adams Ward; An Appreciation," "Sylvia," "An Exhibition of American Sculpture," and "Our medals and Our Medals".
Adams also advocated for war memorials to be created by professional sculptors rather than mass-produced in factories.
In addition to art criticism, Adams also wrote poetry. She wrote two collections of poetry about her deceased daughters.
