John Septimus "Jack" Sears (1875-1969) was a Tribune and Deseret News man, as well as a former J. T. Harwood student and Mahonri Young colleague and friend who would be a longtime University of Utah Department of Art instructor.
He also became known throughout the country for some pretty fair cartoons and journalistic drawings done for several American magazines and newspapers. Sears began the study of painting and drawing under Harwood from 1891 to '93. Winning a local competition silver medal in 1892 "for best oil painting for those under 18," he then studied for another year at the Mark Hopkins Art Institute in San Francisco under Arthur B. Mathews, William Keith, and others. Back with Harwood
