Herschel Logan

(1901-1987)   Born in Missouri and raised in Winfield, Kansas, Herschel Logan grew up with a love for art, which led to a year studying at the Chicago Academy of Art. His job at McCormick Armstrong printing company brought him to Wichita where he was influenced by Robert Aitchison and C. A. Seward. It was through Seward that Herschel became a prolific woodblock printer during the height of the Arts and Crafts Movement. Herschel’s subject matter was that of everyday scenes in rural Kansas, and he was the youngest founding member of the Prairie Print Makers.
