An illustrator of a popular boys adventure book series as well as a number of classics and magazine covers, Mead Schaeffer had a distinguished career as one of America's top magazine and book illustrators. His work, according to Walter Reed ("The Illustrator in America") "divides itself into two periods: the early one deals with romantic, swashbuckling and theatrical subjects. The second, although still strong and dramatic, is based on authentic, factual themes and is more reportorial."
