Comments: Direct carver. Not to be confused with M. Emma Musselman, who was also born in 1880 (on Jan. 26th in Lancaster, PA, while Myra V. Musselman was born Nov. 27th in Lexington, KY). Musselman-Carr was co-owner and sculpture teacher at the Modern Art School (c. 1915-17) on Washington Square in NYC, a school described in its literature as the only modern center in America." William Zorach taught painting there. She later married Charles Bateman.
