This biography from the Archives of AskART:
William Schimmel was a German-born wood carver who tramped through the Cumberland Valley near Carlisle, Pennsylvania, often staying in jails and almshouses. His only occupation was carving heads of animals out of soft pine, which he would sell for a few pennies each. Reportedly he had a very surly disposition.

He became the first of four important Cumberland County carvers, specializing in large, dramatic, colorful eagles. Schimmel's eagles have both smooth and crosshatched bodies, and many of his carvings are on display at the Winterthur Museum and the Cumberland County Historical Society.
