Hancock, who studied with Grafly at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Arts, graduated in 1925 and was awarded the Prix de Rome fellowship to study at the American Academy in Rome from 1925 to 1928. Upon his return, Grafly recommended Hancock to replace him as head of the sculpture department, as he was ill. Hancock accepted and taught there from 1929 until 1967.
