In the latter position he taught classes in portrait and figure painting for eight years.



In 1928 the Erie Art Club honored him with a joint exhibit along with George Elmer Browne. That same year he won the Grant prize from the New Rochelle Art Association. Further awards came in 1929 with a silver medal and figure prize from the Allied Artists of America; in 1934 with a first place in the New Jersey Annual Art Show at the Montclair Art Museum, and in 1935 with a medal awarded by the National Arts Club of which he was a life member.
