Approved biography for Edward W. Trevelyan
(Courtesy of Christian Peterson)
Edward Walter Trevelyan was born on April 6, 1881, in Montevideo, Uruguay. He was living in the United States by the mid-1930s, when he was a member of the Riverside (California) Pictorialists.
His work was included in the Far Western Inter-Club Salon of Photography, seen at the Palo Alto Community Center in December 1936 and the Stanford University Art Gallery the next month. This collaborative show comprised photographs from twenty-nine camera clubs in Colorado, Idaho, Washington, California, and Hawaii. The Riverside Pictorialists were represented by five photographers, Trevelyan being the only one with more than one print. The institute’s photograph by him is a very softly focused landscape image, with trees and clouds, heavily manipulated by hand. Edward W. Trevelyan died in Riverside, California, on April 10, 1947.
