Description
Albert M. Bender (1866-1941) was the leading patron of the Arts in San Francisco in the 1920-30s. Using the wealth he aquired as an insurance broker he helped start the careers of several artists such as Ansel Adams, and probably Max Pollak as well. His impact on the cultural development of the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond is noteworthy.
