advertising art. During this time he studied with Frank DuMond
and George Bridgman at the Art Students League, with Pruett Carter at
the Grand Central Art School, and taught at the Pratt Institute, Art
Career School, and Cooper Union.
Retiring from commercial art in 1946, he moved to North Carolina and
remained there until his death in Rocky Mount on April 28, 1993.
