This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Unlike many illustrators who graduated from newspaper art departments to the more lucrative magazine markets, Harry Dart continued to work in both fields.  Beginning with the Boston Herald, he was sent to Cuba in 1898 by the New York World to cover the Spanish-American War as an artist- correspondent.  Later, he became art editor of the World with a staff of artists under him.

He also carried on a simultaneous free-lance career as an illustrator for Harpers Weekly, Life, Judge, and other magazines.  Dart was especially intrigued by the future of flight and concocted large, complex pictures of fanciful flying machines and future cities all in perfect perspective with convincing detail.

Dart was a member of the Players Club and the Society of Illustrators.

Harry Dart's brother William A. worked at several newspapers on the west coast. Their grandmother on their father's side was the sister of painter George Catlin (1796-1872).
