This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is submitted by the artist, April 2004.

Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Vic Donahue was raised in Omaha and then became a newspaper artist there and in Chicago.  He also played the drums in dance bands before enlisting in World War II where, sketching and painting the Marines in the Pacific, he became one of the first official combat artists.

Following the war, he joined the Scripps-Howard newspaper syndicate in Cleveland, Ohio as a feature artist.  He was nominated two times for the Pulitzer Prize for Best Newspaper Feature of the Year.

He moved to New York City where he was a book, magazine and advertising illustrator before he turned to fine-art painting.  In 1962, he and his wife and two sons moved to Tucson, Arizona, where they have remained.

His paintings are in the Christlieb Collection at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln; the Navy and Marine Collections and the National Archives in Washington DC; the Museum of Nebraska Art in Kearney; Brown University Library in Providence, Rhode Island; and the Mountain Oyster Club of Tucson, Arizona.

Vic Donahue passed on at the age of 90, December 16, 2008 in Arizona.
