Biography   James Carter Beard

Known primarily as an illustrator of plant and animal life, James Carter Beard was born in Cincinnati and studied art with his father, James Henry Beard. He began his adult life as an attorney who served in the Civil War and then turned to draftsmanship. He lived in New York and exhibited with the Brooklyn Art Association.

His illustrations appeared in dictionaries, encyclopedias, books on natural history and books he wrote as well as magazines including "Harper's" and "Century". After the death of his wife, he moved in 1910 to New Orleans to live with a son. He died there three years later (1913).
