Biography Richard Lack
Born in Minnesota on March 26, 1928, Richard Lack grew up in South Minneapolis among primarily Scandinavian immigrant families. His father was a dentist whose family emigrated from Germany. His mother's parents came from Norway.
When he was four, Lack's parents gave him a series of finely illustrated books edited by Olive Beaupre Miller called My Bookhouse. The stories and the pictures, many of them by prominent illustrators of the period, made a deep impression on the boy, who had a natural interest in fantasy. The seeds of many of Lack's later imaginative paintings were planted in those early years through reading the stories and studying the illustrations found in the "bookhouse" books.
