Remington Schuyler

(1884-1955) was born July 8,1884, in Buffalo, New York, but he grew up in the mid-West. He was an expert on Native American lore, lecturing, painting and writing extensively on the subject. Schuyler was related through his mother to Frederic Remington studied engineering and art at Washington University in St. Louis. It is not clear just when he studied with Howard Pyle - whether it was before or after he attended the Art Students League in New York, but it would seem likely that it was about 1907 or 1908. He also studied in Paris at the Academie Julian and in Rome. Schuyler did illustrations for Boy's Life and the Boy Scout handbook as part of his thirty years service as a volunteer for the Boy Scouts, serving in volunteer roles from Scout Master to Vice President of Council. He also wrote some of the Scouting merit badge requirements. He also was active as a mural painter and was editor of the Architectural Record for a period. He illustrated many books, including Daniel Boone, Wilderness Scout by Stewart Edward White, Indian Hunting Grounds and Great White Buffalo. Other illustrations were published in Life, St. Nicholas and The Century Magazine. Resourceful and self-reliant during the Depression years, he painted many covers for pulp magazines, did some WPA murals and sometimes bartered his paintings for haircuts, meals and dental work. In addition to his illustrating and artwork, he was active in local theater in Pelham Manor, NY and Westport, CT. He taught art in several cities and was the artist-in-residence and an associate professor of art at Missouri Valley College in Marshall Missouri for six years. He died October 18, 1955.
