This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Ballston Springs, NY on March 6, 1825. Otis studied art in New York and was a teacher of drawing and perspective before entering medical school. Upon graduating in 1852, he served as ships surgeon for the Pacific Mail Steamship Company from 1853-59. In 1860 he returned to NYC, established a medical practice, and published Illustrated History of the Panama Railroad which included views of San Francisco from Rincon Point, 1854 and Foundry of the Pacific Mail Steamship Company, Benicia, California, 1855. His view of San Francisco was published by lithographer C. Parsons in 1856. Otis died in New Orleans on May 24, 1900. In: Society of Calif. Pioneers; Amon Carter Museum (Ft Worth).
