This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Washington, George William Coblentz distinguished himself at age 16 by making a topographical map of timber holdings for J.P. Weyerhouser Co in the Northwest.  It was in longtime use.

During World War I, he was a topographical mapper in the European Theater.  He settled in Los Angeles in 1923 and became known for his sports cartoons for the Los Angeles Evening Herald.  He also did engineering designs for Hughes Aircraft, and traveling from Europe, Canada, Mexico and every state in the Union, produced bold, colorful canvas landscapes.
