William Edmondson was the first African American stonemason and sculptor to have a solo exhibition at New York City’s Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). He reportedly suffered an accident in 1907 and in 1908 began work as a servant, fireman, and janitor for the Nashville Woman's Hospital (later Baptist Hospital); he served until the hospital's close in 1931. Using the primitive tools of a handyman - flat chisels made from iron spikes and a battered hammer for a mallet - he began to cut away at limestone from wrecked buildings in Nashville. By the mid-1930's Edmondson's work was well known to artists and collectors in Nashville.
