Education and early career

Fredericks was born in Rock Island, Illinois. In 1930 Fredericks graduated from the Cleveland Institute of Art, and traveled to Europe on the Herman Matzen Traveling Scholarship. It was during this trip that he first met Carl Milles who was to be his mentor for many years. Upon returning from Europe he obtained a position teaching at his former school. In 1932 he was invited by Milles, then at Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, to join him there as an assistant, an offer which Fredericks accepted. He was to remain there until 1942.
In 1936 Fredericks won a competition to create the Levi L Barbour Memorial Fountain on Belle Isle in Detroit and this was to be the first of many public monuments created by Fredericks.
Fredericks died in Birmingham, Michigan on April 4, 1998.
