Seeking relief from tuberculosis, Parsons moved to Santa Fe in 1913 and became the third resident artist there. In 1914 he became art curator for the Museum of New Mexico, often assisting artists new to Santa Fe. Parsons studied at the National Academy of Design and left a promising portraiture career in New York with sitters such as President William McKinley and Susan B. Anthony.
