This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Herb Morford Mott, Jr. was born in 1923 in Ridgewood, NJ.  His father was also named Herbert Morford Mott.  His mother was Grace Mott.  He was the oldest of two sons.

After completing four years of high school he entered the U.S. Air Force.  He was always interested in art and was fortunately assigned to a graphic art department to produce visual aids for training where he learned the basic skills to become an artist.

When the war was over he was determined to continue his art education.  He joined a graphic art studio in New York City and began to sell freelance illustrations.  He sold work to book publishers and commercial advertisers.  His pen and ink drawings illustrated stories in Fifteen Western Tales and Western Story Round Up.   He was most successful at painting covers for Railroad Magazine for which he painted 52 covers 1949 until 1954. 

During the 1950's he also painted interior story illustrations for many men's adventure magazines, such as Adventure, Argosy, Bluebook, Bluebook for Men, Climax, Male, Men, Men Annual, Men's Pictorial, Real, Saga, C for Men, and Stag.

He illustrated book such as The Fur Lodge by Beverly Butler and Great Trains of All Times by Freeman Hubbard.

In 1956 he was commission to create a series of paintings for the US Air force.  In the 1960's he produced a series of paintings about the Civil War for the Vicksburg Battlefield Museum.  In the 1980's he began to produce a similar series of paintings for the US Coastguard.

Herb Mott is currently working in Taos, New Mexico at age 86.
