Artist, art educator, art gallery director, independent curator and website designer. Gene Arthur Scattergood aka Scattergood-Moore lives and works at Claflin School Studios in Newtonville, MA, USA |
Scattergood was born in Newton, Massachusetts and raised on Long Island, New York by his mother's sister (Josephine Moore Orton and her family). He was abducted by members of the Christian Science Church in Boston and brought to his father. A year later he was sent to Cape Cod to be raised by his father's step-sister (Helen May Scattergood Baker).
Scattergood graduated from Dennis Yarmouth Regional High School in 1959; received a diploma in Painting and Drawing from Swain School of Design, New Bedford, in 1963; earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Boston University in 1966, and a Master of Fine Arts from the University of Cincinnati in 1968.
Scattergood has taught studio art for 45 years; he left teaching in 2006. He has curated over 150 exhibitions and founded the company Pantherpro Webdesign. The latter has created websites for many contemporary visual artists, and webpages on neglected artists: Helen West Heller, Thomas Wilfred, etc..
Scattergood has an extensive record of solo and group exhibitions; his drawings and paintings are included in numerous private collections across the United States. He received three fellowships from the the Massachusetts Council for the Arts and was nominated for the prestigious national Awards in the Visual Arts Program. He has worked for artists' rights and artists' housing issues and was a founding member of the Waltham Mills Artists Association and the Newton Artists Housing Partnership. The later purchased Claflin School from the City of Newton and developed it into permanent live/work space for visual artists. He has served on the Newton Arts Center Board of Directors and was appointed visual arts representative to the City of Newton Cultural Council, which he chaired during 2002-2004.
Today Scattergood lives in Newton with The Studio Cat - she has her own webpage at: http://www.donstinson.com/scatt/calicocat/cats.html. Scattergood enjoys shade gardening, walking, cooking ethnic dishes, reading, foreign cinema and researching information on Helen West Heller and collecting her extraordinary woodcuts. Scattergood is very interested in family history and genealogy and is researching the "Scattergood" and "Moore" families. His genealogy homepage is under construction at http://pantherpro-webdesign.com/homepage/genealogy/genealogy.html

I took the picture of her stone while walking around to take pics and especially with german names and YES she is buried in section 70.
You can use the picture for you homepage but maybe I should go there again a clean the stone first for you and make a new picture.
I don't have any further information on Helen West Heller sorry.

Of course you can use the photo...glad I could be of help.

We too checked PV001 -
we looked around the Scattergood plot and she is not mentioned on any of the 3 stones found there. Knowing PV003 is Swan Point, we checked the kiosk and neither Alice or her husband are listed there.
I suggest you call Swan Point and ask about this. You may have to prove relationship to Alice as they are sticklers about privacy there - do not allow (sanctioned) photography by anyone other than family member.
If you do find her whereabouts, I would be happy to try to follow-up.

remember the stone could be wrong too!

I went to North Burial Ground today. There is NO Alice Scholes there. When I mentioned your code of PV003, they said that means she is in Swan Point Cemetery, not North Burial Ground. North uses code PV001. They said to try Swan Point.
