Fred Irvin is a realistic illustrator who did magazine covers,
advertisements, and story illustrations during the 1940s and 1950s,
and moved to animation in the 1970s. Born in Chillicothe, Missouri, he
attended the Kansas City Art Institute in 1935 and the Chicago Academy of
Fine Arts the following year. His career as an illustrator brought him to
New York in 1940, where he began his professional career.
