Hale Woodruff was born in 1900 at Cairo, Illinois, and was educated in the public schools of Nashville, Tennessee. Upon receiving a Harmon Foundation grant in 1926, he sailed to Paris to study at the Academie de la Grand Chaumiere. His later work shows the influence of the Expressionist style. Following his return to the United States in 1931, Woodruff became an art instructor at Atlanta University, later accepting a post in the Art Education department at NYU, where he was named professor emeritus. Among Woodruff's most well known works are the Amistad Murals, created for the library at Talladega College and the murals created for the library at Atlanta University.
