Biography Harold Wilkins
Harold R. Wilkins was born in 1912 on a farm north of Tabor, Iowa in Mills County. His parents were very musical and enjoyed the arts. At the age of six he was drawing pictures on butcher paper, and he created pictures depicting American western and pioneer lifestyle through out his life. He would draw on his personal rural life experiences, which included images of Chester, Dan, Maude and Polly, the draft horses, working on the farm and breakfast over a coal-fired stove.
