Born near Parker, Kansas and died in Topeka, Kansas in 1964. E. Ben Horlacher was a sculptor.  He dropped out of school after the 8th grade.  He served in the army, 1920-23, and then moved to Topeka in 1924.

He studied art in adult-education classes at Washburn College, Topeka, 1928-31. He studied with Lester T. Hull.  He became a bus driver by occupation and a sculptor by choice.
