This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born on March 25, 1857 in Rahway, NJ. After 1881 Chapin worked for Chicago newspapers and as a correspondent for Leslie's Weekly. He appears to have spent the years 1894-96 in Pasadena but did not settle in California until 1905. Two years were spent in San Francisco and two years on a stock ranch near Fresno before moving to Los Angeles. He was head of the art department and a cartoonist for the Los Angeles Times for many years. In his leisure he painted western scenes and took up sculpting late in life. Chapin died in Hollywood, CA on Oct. 15, 1937. Exh: Painters & Sculptors of LA, 1926.
