This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following, submitted January 2005, is from Christine Turnbaugh, a relative of H. Rudolph Pott. She wrote:

"Rudy Pott was a most admired family member, married to Mary Louise (Grove) Pott my father's first cousin. We are a small family and spent much time together because of this fact. As my husband and I graduated from Drexel Institute of Technology, now Drexel University, we lived in Philadelphia from 1963 until 1975 and were close to Rudy and Mary Lou. We spent many happy times together during those years."

H. Rudolph Pott was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1899. His family lived in the Germantown section of the city where his father had a photography studio. He graduated from the Museum School of Art of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. As a child he made quite a collection of early baseball cards from the Turkey Red and Egyptine cigarette companies.

Rudy Pott went to Arizona and worked on a dude ranch as a cowboy after finishing school. He was especially interested in gaining the ability to illustrate horses in action. He was a master at horses. He returned to Philadelphia, married and began his career as an illustrator in a studio on Sansom Street He illustrated for General Motors. He did many illustrations for magazine covers and short stories for Curtis Publishing Company. He was given a commission by the British Crown to do illustrative advertising for the Island of Bermuda. During this time Rudy and Mary Lou lived in Jenkintown, Pennsylvania.

He retired to create art that was less like a photograph. He did many paintings of the surrounds of Booth Bay and Bar Harbour, Maine where the couple made many visits. He spent much time in retirement making reproductions of 18th-century English furniture and miniatures of the same. He was the kind of artist who could do anything he set his mind to do. He lived with Mary Lou in Fort Washington, Pennsylvania until his death in 1974. He was a devout Christian Scientist all of his life.
