The artist was born in Boston, MA. He was a painter and sculptor who specialized in animal subjects and still life. During the 1860s and 1870s, Pope worked for his father in the lumbering business. In 1875, he began exhibiting his carved and painted wood trophies of live and game birds. He published two portfolios of lithographs, one being devoted to this subject entitled 'Upland Game Birds and Water Fowl of the United States'.
