This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following biographical information is from Judy Anthony, grand daughter of the artist:

Ernest Edwin Anthony was born September 26, 1894 in Providence, Rhode Island, the fourth child of James Thomas Anthony and his wife, Pearley Perkins.  He received his art training at the Rhode Island School of Design where he met his future wife, Josephine Phillips Hagan of Providence, also a student at R.I.S.D.  She was the daughter of Henry Battey Hagan and Lucy Pease Phillips.

The couple eloped to Boston and married there on February 22, 1918. They made their home first in Lynn, Massachusetts and then, after the birth of their two sons, David Loren in 1925 and Stephen Richard in 1926, they moved to Swampscott, Massachusetts.

Ernest was employed for 25 years as an artist at the Forbes Lithograph Company in Boston, and also taught art at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.

He died on December 3, 1941 at the age of 47 of a heart attack.

Here's a transcription of an obituary that appeared in one of the Boston newspapers:

E. E. Anthony, Artist, Dead Swampscott
Teacher Stricken in Boston

Ernest E. Anthony, 47, of 22 Banks Terrace, Swampscott, a commercial artist who has been a teacher at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, died suddenly yesterday of a heart attack while walking on Mount Vernon street, Boston. He asked Robert Ward of 108 Mount Vernon street to call a taxicab for him, explaining that he felt ill. When Ward returned after telephoning from his house, he found Anthony lying on the sidewalk. The Swampscott man was dead on arrival at Massachusetts General Hospital.

Mr. Anthony was born in Providence and was graduated from the Rhode Island State School of Design. He served in the army in the World War and was a member of Leon E. Abbott Post, American Legion, of Swampscott. He had been employed for 25 years by the Forbes Lithograph Company, had done work for several Boston publishing firms, and was a free lance artist and designer in recent years. He leaves his widow, Mrs. Josephine Anthony, two sons, David L., and Stephen R., both of Swampscott, and a sister, Mrs. Ralph Chase, of West Falmouth. Funeral services will be at the Lee and Moody Funeral Home, 9 Dane street, Beverly, Saturday at 2 P.M. Burial will be at Waterside Cemetery, Marblehead.
