In an effort to make the fine art work of Avard Fairbanks and his family more available to the public, a self-dictated autobiography has been recorded, transcribed, and organized into a series of short chapters. Additional information has been obtained from his writings and lectures to compliment his dictations. A bibliography of articles about his sculpture has been compiled. A year-to-year chronology has also been compiled to assist art historians who wish to comment about his teaching and monuments. A registry of his sculpture has been developed and occasionally new information is received about work which has been unrecorded. This will be available on a CD to be distributed to museums where he has works on exhibit, and to institutions where he has taught sculpture.
