Biography from J. Franklin Fine Art, Inc.:
Born in Kansas, Willard Cox moved to California to pursue a commercial art career in San Francisco in the 1920's & 30's, at which time he was in business with Maurice Logan, a Bay Area artist who was part of the Society of Six.

Cox was a member of the Bohemian Club and the San Francisco Illustrators' Club during that period, and became a member of the Puget Sound Group of Northwest Painters in Seattle in 1933.

He exhibited at the Oakland Art Gallery in 1937.  He was commissioned to paint pictures for the US Air Force and the Pacific Steamship Company.  He is known for doing illustrations for the covers of Pacific Steamship Company ephemera.

Cox was also a regular exhibitor in San Francisco in the late 30's with a group called the 'Thirteen Watercolorists', which also included Maurice Logan and other notable California watercolorists.
