Biographical notes:

Ethan Allen Greenwood (1779-1856) of Hubbardston, Mass., was a teacher, lawyer, and artist. He graduated from Dartmouth College in 1806, studied briefly at West Point, and was a student of Edward Savage (1761-1817) in New York City. In Westminster, Mass., Greenwood studied law at the office of Strong and Dodd and kept store with his brother, Aaron, each of them half owner of the establishment. Between his studying, Greenwood taught school, primarily in Westminster. In 1812 he opened a portrait studio in Boston. He became proprietor of the Gallery of Art and the New York Museum, which became known as the New England Museum in 1818 and finally the Boston Museum. In 1827 Greenwood retired to Hubbardston, Mass., where he became active in local politics and served as state senator and justice of the peace.
