This biography from the Archives of AskART:

The following information is submitted in June of 2006 by Nan Hall Lombardi, daughter of Tom Hall:

Tom Hall (A. Thomas Hall)
He was born on. February 23, 1908 in Chicago, Illinois and died May 13, 1965 in Oak Park, Illinois.  Hall worked primarily in Chicago and Oak Park, Illinois as an illustrator, and was best known for men's fashion illustrations.
His work appeared in True magazine (1950's), and Sports Afield magazine (1950's).

Tom Hall was born in Chicago, IL and worked there for his entire life, with the exception of a short period of time around 1929 when he worked in New York City.  He left school after the ninth grade and went to work.  At some point he attended the American Academy of Art in Chicago.  His first art job was with the Vogue Wright Studios in Chicago where he started by painting the highlights on buttons and progressed to the herringbone patterns in suits.  He often told the story of his first day there when they sent him out to the art stores to buy vanishing points!  In the 1940's he was a principal in the Stevens, Hall, Biondi Studio in Chicago.  His last studio he shared with Haddon Sundblom in the Fine Arts Building in Chicago.

He was primarily known for his men's fashion illustration and did Hart Schaffner and Marx men's clothing illustrations for over eighteen years.  He also did advertising illustrations for Alligator raincoats, Dobbs hats, Schlitz beer, Kotex, Green Giant, Coca Cola, Santa Fe Railroad, American Airlines, and others.  His story illustrations appeared in the Saturday Evening Post, Colliers, American Magazine, Ladies Home Journal, True, Sports Afield, etc.  He was a member of the Society of Illustrators in New York.
