This biography from the Archives of AskART:
From Minnesota, George Ericson used the pseudonym Eugene Iverd for his illustration work.  He studied at the St. Paul Art Institute and the Pennsylvania Academy.  In 1918, he was drafted into the Army, but the war ended before he was sent out of the country. 

He served the remainder of his army duty in Washington DC, where until 1921, he was an art instructor for wounded veterans in Walter Reed Hospital.  Then he took a teaching position at Academy High School in Erie, Pennsylvania, and within a short time, was promoted to city-wide supervisor. 

By 1926, his illustration career was taking off, and he spent less time on teaching and also spent more time, especially summers, in his home state of Minnesota.  By 1933, he was able to resign from teaching because of the financial security he had from illustration.  However, he died three years later from complications from rheumatoid arthritis.

This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following information was sent to AskART.com by Lyn Farquhar, grandson of the artist:

"Eugene Iverd was the 'brush name' of my grandfather, George Ericson.  Iverd was a cover artist and for the Saturday Evening Post, he did 29 covers.  He also did over 100 advertisement and story illustration paintings.  The ads were for Campbell soup and Monarch foods.  The story illustrations were mostly for the Saturday Evening Post, Ladies Home Journal, McCalls and a series of farm magazines (Progressive Farmer, Successful Farming, Farmer's Wife).

Biography from Erie County Historical Socity:
George Ericson Iverd was born in St. Paul, Minnesota on January 31,1893.  He studied at St. Paul's School of Art and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in
Philadelphia.  He settled in Erie, Pennsylvania in 1921 and became the first art
instructor at the newly opened Academy High School.  He died at the age of 43, in June 1936.

While Ericson painted landscapes and early illustrations under his own name, he used the name Eugene Iverd for his commercial art work done after 1926.  He painted numerous works for the Saturday Evening Post, Ladies Home Journal, Campbell Soup Company and many others.  Many of the models for his work were residents of the Erie area.
