Excerpt From "Who Was Who In American Art"

    Herbert Paus was a native of Minneapolis and got his first job as a cartoonist for the St. Paul Pioneer Press. Ambitious to become an illustrator, he enrolled in the Fine Arts School there, later found employment in a Chicago art studio. 

    Eventually he moved to New York where he became a free lance illustrator.  Paus had a strong sense of design, ideally suited to the many effective posters he painted during World War I.  This approach, combined with a striking use of color, was carried over into his magazine illustrations and cover designs.

    Paus painted for such advertisers as Victor Records, Hart Schaffner and Marx, and for several years was under exclusive contract to do all the covers for Popular Science Monthly.
