Biography: Thomas Campbell immigrated to the U.S. at age 19 and was originally ordained as a minister. After his wife's death in 1892, he retired and turned to art. He founded the art department at Maryville College in 1902 and headed it until his death. His paintings were exhibited regionally and won several prizes and medals. He was also active in the Nicholson Art League, and was a talented wood carver who produced picture frames and small pieces of furniture. Campbell mostly painted pastoral landscapes.
