This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Making his first illustrations for the "Saturday Evening Post" before he was age 20, Edmund Ward had a successful career as an illustrator of works that ranged in style and subject matter from dark tonalist in oils to humorous in wash and watercolor. For many years he illustrated the Alexander Botts and Assistant District Attorney Doowinkle stories for the "Post."

He was born in White Plains, New York, where he spent most of his career and where he also painted a mural for the Federal Building. He studied at the Art Students League with Norman Rockwell with whom he shared a studio. Among his teachers at the League were Thomas Fogarty, Edward Dufner, and George Bridgman. He was a member of the Salmagundi Club, the Guild of Freelance Artists, and a member of the Society of Illustrators.

NOTE from an anonymous Source:
He was a good friend and I would always visit him and his wife Laura on my way to and from New England. Usually it would be for breakfast and then we would go to his studio and he would get to work saying "God, how I love the smell of turpentine in the morning."
