This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following biography was submitted by Joanne Conti, June 2005

Clyde Osmer DeLand (or Deland) was a musician and writer as well as an illustrator.  He studied music in Rochester, NY, and attended the University of Rochester.  As a young man he taught music and was a concert pianist.

However, DeLand decided to make art his career and came to Philadelphia to Drexel Institute, where he studied under Howard Pyle.  In 1898 and 1899 he was one of the scholarship students who studied with Pyle at Chadds Ford during the summer.  He contributed illustrations from 1897 on to magazines including Harper's Monthly, Cosmopolitan, Ladies Home Journal and American Boy, as well as the Gerlach Barklow Calendar Company.  He specialized in scenes of American history including Washington's Last Birthnight Ball, Franklin's Arrival at Philadelphia, Raising the First American Flag, and The First Inauguration of Washington.

He illustrated many books, including White Aprons, by Maude Wilder Goodwin, 1897; Scouting for Washington by John Preston True, 1900; one volume of the complete writings of Hawthorne published by Houghton, Mifflin, 1900; Cinderella, by S. R. Crockett, 1901; and A Forest Hearth; a Romance of Indiana, by Charles Major, 1903.

Sources include:
A Small School of Art: The Students of Howard Pyle, published by the Delaware Art Museum.  The initials PJN follow the text, as well as a reference notation that says: References: Hawkes, Bates; WWAA, 1940-1941; New York Times Obit, March 29, 1947; DAM files.
