Whipple’s book, New England Scenery from Nature, in 1852, and he exhibited at the National Academy of Design, the American Art-Union, the Boston Art Club, and the Boston Athenaeum. Beginning in the 1860’s, Hitchings also devoted himself to teaching; he served as an art professor at the U.S. Naval Academy for eight years and worked as a drawing teacher in the Boston public schools. His work is currently featured in the Dedham Historical Society in Dedham, Massachusetts.
