Biographical or Historical Information
As chairman of the art department at WC, Ivy introduced the state of North Carolina to contemporary painting, and under his leadership, the department acquired a national reputation. For many years, WC was the only college offering bachelor's and master's degrees in painting. Ivy was also instrumental in establishing the Weatherspoon Art Gallery and the Weatherspoon Art Guild.
Ivy served in the Camouflage School of the US Army during world War II. He left Woman's College in 1961 and joined the firm of Loewenstein and Atkinson as design coordinator, and later served as professor of art at California State University, Fullerton, from 1965 to 1971 (and served as chairman of the department from 1965 to 1967). Ivy retired and moved to Missouri in 1971.
