Karl Patterson Schmidt (1890 - 1957) was Chief Curator of Zoology at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago from 1941-55. Walter Alois Weber (1906 - 1979) developed his talent for drawing at an early age and used to sell his drawings at a local tavern so he could buy soda pop. He showed an interest about animal and plant life early on and had collections of whatever living things he could catch and keep: beetles, squirrels, crows, ants, mice, raccoons, and turtles, for instance; together with plants from their natural habitat.
