historical notes Harington Beard owned a gallery in Minneapolis, Minn.

Beard was born in England and moved with his family to the United States in 1879. When his father's business was destroyed by the Chicago fire, Beard and his brothers opened a stationery store. In 1886, Beard married, moved to Minneapolis and opened the Harington Beard Fine Art Shop.

The name was later changed to Beard Art Galleries and the gallery operated continuously until Beard's death in 1940. Richard Beard Thompson reopened the gallery around 1980.
