This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born Washington, DC, 1873 and died September 15, 1943, Sydney Prentice was an illustrator and outstanding artist of fossil bones.  He moved to Lawrence, Kansas when he was seven, and graduated from the University of Kansas, Lawrence, in 1896.  He earned an MA from the University of Kansas in 1906.

The bulk of his career, 40 years, was spent working for the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Pittsburgh, PA.  At the time of his death, the Carnegie Museum issued this statement in its 1943 annual report: "The demise of Sydney Prentice on September 15 was a severe blow to this institution and a painful loss for his colleagues.  He was respected and admired as an untiring worker in his professional field of scientific illustration, especially in the subjects of paleontology and osteology, in which he had gained a reputation unsurpassed by anyone in this country.
