This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Newt Heisley was a graphic artist who designed the Vietnam War era flag for the POW * MIA.  The iconic black-and-white images of the silhouette of a man in profile with his head bowed in the foreground with a guard tower and barbed wire behind him was designated "the symbol of our nation's concern" for soldiers still unaccounted for in Southeast Asia during the Vietnam War by the United States Congress in 1990.

Born in Williamsport, Pennsylania in 1920, Heisley was raised by his grandparents and attended Syracuse University where he earned a degree in fine arts.  After he served in the United States Army Air Forces during War World II, he returned to the New York City area where he had a career as a graphic artist. 

In the early 1970s he moved to Colorado where he opened an advertising firm with his son.  After his retirement he took up fine art painting.  Newton Heisley died May 14, 2009.
