Francis John McComas was born in Fingal, Tasmania on Oct. 1, 1875.  At age 15 McComas enrolled at the Sydney Technical Institute.  Leaving Australia in 1898 with artist Myer Blashki, he worked his way to San Francisco as a merchant seaman.  Upon arrival, he studied with Arthur Mathews at the Mark Hopkins Institute and continued in Paris at Académie Julian. 

Returning to San Francisco in 1902, he had his first solo show at Vickery's, and in 1904 toured Europe with phot (showing 500 of 7977 characters).
