This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following biographical materials are submitted by Scott Wilder, Fine Art Researcher of Kansas and Missouri artists.

Born and raised in Kickapoo, Kansas, Roland "Kickapoo" Logan graduated from Leavenworth, Kansas Senior high in 1926.  He played halfback on the football team at Kansas University in Lawrence, coached at the West Point Military Academy, and was a Commander in the U.S. Navy.  He was also a member of the National Hall of Fame for athletic trainers.  His art studios were located in Palm Springs, California where he lived and worked for many years. Logan won the Postato Prize awarded by the Salmagundi Club of New York City.  He was also awarded the American Institute of Fine Arts Medal.

Kickapoo is known for his landscapes, seascapes, and American Indian paintings. He signs his paintings "Kickapoo Logan".  Kickapoo's younger brother Gene Adams Logan was also a well listed artist specializing in sculpture.


The following is taken directly from a flyer evidently originally provided by the artist that accompanied one of Kickapoo's paintings:

Kickapoo Logan received his brush name, from his childhood home in the Kickapoo Indian lands of Northeast Kansas.  He is Irish Indian. More and more people today are buying Kickapoo Logan original oil paintings, because they want to enjoy:
* the bold stokes of his seascapes,
* the grandeur of his mountain scenes,
* the warm colors of his desert scapes,
* the "traquil moods" of his rural scenes,
* and the native beauty of his American Indian Paintings.

The Los Angeles Times said, "kickapoo's Life Is Art". His colorful and robust career spells creativity - A Naval Commander, coach, and trainer at West Point, Pittsburg, George Washington and Kansas Universities and the Boston Red Sox. Author, lecturer, singer, and manufacturer of athletic and surgical products.

He sold his factory to paint eight hours a day.  Robert A. Schroeder president of the Missouri Bar Foundation said "Kickapoo You are in the class of the great Robert Wood" Mr. Schroeder is an outstanding art authority, and he and Mrs. Schroeder own one of the largest and finest private art collections in the USA. This includes five Kickapoos.

Kickapoo recently [1962] was elected to the National Hall of Fame for athletic trainers.  Most recently the US Navy commissioned Kickapoo tp new surface and sub surface equipment.  The paintings will then be on tour through the USA.

An ever increasing majority of commissions for Kickapoos's paintings are coming in, in the form of mail orders.  Kickapoo extends to you a invitation to stop in and "browse" among his paintings on display in his Palm Springs California Studio - by appointment.

"Kickapoo" Logan distinguished American Artist, presented President Richard Nixon an oil seascape, at the White House in October 1969.  Mr. Nixon then requested one of Kickapoo's "desert scapes" for his San Clemente White House West.

Kickapoo's paintings are on display across the length and breadth of the country:
* Salmagundi Art Club, New York City, N.Y.
* Old World Gallery, Kansas City, Mo.
* The Eisenhower Collection, Eisenhower Museum, Abilene, Kansas.

The American Institude of Fine Arts awarded Kickapoo their medal, honoring his artistic ability. His recognition is so widespread, that he is in demand as: Show Judge, Workshop Instructor, and as entertaining personality at his "one-man shows".

He later relocated his studio to: 1175 San Lucas Road, Palm Springs, California.

More information:

Roland "Kickapoo" Logan, the founder, editor and publisher of the Athletic Training News from 1949 to 1958, started his athletic training career in 1930 at the University of Kansas. He later held the head athletic trainer position for George Washington, Pittsburgh, West Point, North Carolina, Navy, Pasadena College and the Boston Red Sox.  Logan has invented and developed more than 20 athletic products designed to prevent injuries and lectured at approximately 400 clinics during his 40-year athletic training career.


The following is an interesting article about the Logan brothers. Note both Roland and Gene [Adams] Logan.  It is not known whether brother Woodrow was also an artist.

Leavenworth Times, Feb. 15, 1942

Local Boys Essential To Navy War Effort.

Three brothers visited The Times office the other day, all of them athletes and all of them vitally concerned with the nation's war effort.  The names of these men are not hard to guess, considering their "family feats" on the local athletic fields.  They were Lieutenant Roland Logan of the United States Navy and his two brothers; Woodrow and Gene.

Roland Logan has been interested in the Navy for several years and now is head trainer at the naval preflight school at Chapel Hill, N. C.; Gene, who graduated from Leavenworth Senior high school in 1940, and who has been an assistant trainer for the Navy at Tulsa, Okla., will accompany his older brother to Chapel Hill to become assistant trainer there.

Woodrow, who graduated from Leavenworth Senior high in 1930, will go to Iowa City, Ia., to become an assistant coach at the naval preflight school there.  Roland is the only brother actually in the service of the Navy, the other brothers are working as civil service employees for the Navy department.

The three brothers were top athletes at Leavenworth high; Roland was halfback on the football team coached by Clifford Shankland before graduating in 1926.  He was also captain of Leavenworth's Northeast Kansas conference cagers.  He established many good playing records while on this squad.

Woodrow Logan, call of '30, won fame for the Logan family in athletics while playing for the Blue and White under Coach Vernon Tinkler in 1929 in a game against St. Joe Benton, Logan overtook a Benton player before he could score to win the game for Leavenworth 6-0. Woodrow was interested in other sports offered at the school also.

Last and far from least of the brothers is Gene, who graduated in 1940, and remembered well by younger sports fans.  Gene played left tackle for the Pioneers under Coach Wally Forsberg and was a great track and field man; establishing many records in the shotput and weights.

Lieutenant Logan explained the navy's athletic program as "the biggest thing that has ever hit the sports world.  The naval officer went on to explain. "The Navy gives the men training in mathematics and physics as well as body-building and strengthening exercises.  The Navy instills in the man the will to tight the enemy through the aid of our sports program." He explained that this training could be of great use to the athlete after he leaves the service.

The three men were staying with their father, Frank Logan, 229 Ottawa, until they left for their destinations for national defense.
