Born in 1860 in Bozanquit, Canada, Alexander Phimister Proctor moved to Denver in 1871 when it was still a frontier town.  He studied painting and sculpture in New York and Paris, where he received wide acclaim, but ultimately he missed the west so much that he moved back in 1915. One of his most famous works is the Bronco Buster seen here at the Denver Civic center.
