This biography from the Archives of AskART:

A self-taught artist and taxidermist, expert of birds and their habits, Maryott was hired by the U.S. government to document migratory birds, and given permission to shoot and mount a bald eagle. Ornithologists often asked his help in search for rare birds.

Miles Maryott loved the sand hills north of Oshkosh, Nebraska, as a painter, hunter and fisherman.  He lived in a spacious lodge on Crescent Lake where he entertained often.  He was well-liked in town but feared for his drunken rampages.  Frequently jailed, Maryott shot Marshal George Albee to death on Thanksgiving of 1926 as he attempted to arrest him.  He pled self-defense, but the court ruled against him and he was sentenced to life in the Nebraska State Penitentiary.

He died in 1939
