Baker studied with John Elwood Bundy, Dean of the Richmond Group, at the Cincinnati Art Academy. Baker also studied at the Boothbay Art School. In 1925 he taught for two semesters as a visiting instructor at Miami University, Oxford, Ohio. Richmond, Indiana is the center of where are most of his works may be seen -- in the Richmond Art Museum, Earlham College, and at the Indiana Centerville Library.
