Biography from Annex Galleries:
Harold Doolittle (American 1883 - 1974) was born in Pasadena, California.  He was an etcher and civil engineer who studied at Cornell University and Throop Polytechnic Institute. He worked for many years as chief design engineer for the Southern California Edison Company.

He was a bit of a Renaissance man, working in all the graphic processes including photography and collotype, but he is most noted for his aquatints.  Doolittle built his own press, mezzotint rocker and preferred to make his own linen paper.

He was a member of the Pasadena Society of Artists, Chicago Society of Etchers, Society of American Graphic Artists, California Society of Etchers and the California Print Makers. He served as president of the California Print Makers in the late 1940's and early 1950's.

Doolittle is represented in the Library of Congress, New York Public Library, Los Angeles Public Library, California State Library, Dayton Art Institute and Brooks Memorial Gallery.
