This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Walter Adolph Mazeski was born July 28,  1909 in Globe, Arizona the son of Russian/Polish immigrants, John and Josephine "Josie" Mazeski.  John Mazeski was born in Poland about 1876 and immigrated to the US in 1903.  Josie was born in Poland about 1883 and also immigrated in 1903. Both became naturalized citizens in 1917.  John Mazeski moved his family from Globe, Arizona, where he worked as a copper miner, to Chicago, Illinois about 1911 where he worked as a tinsmith in 1920 and 1930.  Walter married Casimira J. Sajewski on November 17, 1943 in Chicago, Illinois.

Walter Mazeski attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, probably in the late 1920s and early 1930s.  He studied under Charles Schroeder, Francis Chapin, Charles A. Wilimovsky, and Louis Cheskin.  He exhibited at the Chicago World's Fair in 1933.  He took high honors at the Federated Polish Artist Societies Exhibition in Milwaukee in 1936.  Sometime in 1936 or 1937 he and another painter, Norbert Czernowski, went to Poland and traveled with the Polish army, painting many pictures. Passenger lists record their return from Poland on the ship Battory which left Goynia, Poland on August 24, 1937 and arrived in New York City on September 3, 1937. 

Mazeski exhibited at the AIC 1937-1946, Polish Art Club 1929-45 where he won numerous prizes, and Milwaukee Art Institute 1940-1942 where he won a prize.

Walter Mazeski is mentioned in Who's Who in Polish America by Bolek (1943), Who's Who in American Art (several years), Who Was Who in American Art by Falk, Mallett's Index of Artists, Who's Who in Commercial Art and Photography (1964), and Davenport's Art Reference and Price Guide.  Mazeski is described as a painter, illustrator, American craftsman, designer, teacher, and more.  He apparently enjoyed a long and diverse career as an artist.

Mazeski died on March 24, 1989 at Mt. Prospect, Cook County, Illinois.  His wife, Casimira, died there in March 1996.
