Victor Colby was born in Frankfort, Indiana in 1917 and graduated from Frankfort High School in 1934. He attended the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, D.C., Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana, and graduated from Cornell University, Ithaca, New York with a Master’s Degree in Fine Art in 1950.
Colby was a member of the art faculty at Cornell University teaching sculpting for 32 years until his retirement in 1982.
