This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A peripatetic sign painter who did fine art painting in his leisure early in his career, John Franklin Waldo, also known as J Franklin Waldo, became a landscape and coastal scene painter of professional accomplishment in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

He was born in Chelsea, Vermont, and from 1864 to 1884, lived in Oshkosh, Wisconsin; and from 1884 to 1894 in Chicago, where for two years, 1886 to 1888, he taught at the Frank Bromley School. From 1895 to 1914, he lived in Brooklyn, New York.

He studied painting briefly at the Chicago Academy of Design with Henry Chapman Ford but was mostly self taught and preferred to work in oil, watercolor, and pen and ink.

As early as 1851, when he was age sixteen, he began sketching trips to the West before settling in Oshkosh. In 1884, he lived in San Francisco, where he completed numerous western landscapes, many of them scenes of Rocky Mountains and Indian life from sketching trips he had previously made to Colorado. He also visited Henry Chapman Ford in Santa Barbara, and although he was primarily based in New York from 1895, he returned to Santa Barbara between 1907 to 1911 for painting excursions with Ford. He also lived in Laguna Beach where William Wendt became one of his students, and Waldo spent his final years in Los Angeles where he died May 20, 1920.

During his career, Waldo exhibited at the Art Institute of Chicago, the National Academy of Design, and the World's Fair in New Orleans in 1884 and 1885, and the Chicago World's Fair in 1893.
