Sept. 5, 1879. Tobey came to San Francisco in the late 1880s. She

Dixons moved to Sausalito for one year. She then accompanied her
husband to New York and Tucson and returned to San Francisco in 1912.
Her long periods of depression and alcoholism led to their divorce in
1917. After further study at the California College of Arts and Crafts,
she was a member of the art faculty at UC Berkeley by 1918. She had a
studio on San Francisco’s Russian Hill before moving to Salt Lake City
