Roscoe Shrader was born in Quincy, IL on December 14, 1878. Shrader came to California with his family when he was a child and began his art studies with William Lees Judson at USC. In 1902 he returned to Illinois where he enrolled at the AIC for two years. He continued his art training in Delaware with Howard Pyle and, under Pyle's guidance, became an accomplished illustrator of books and magazines. He was a member of the art colony in New Hope, PA for three years before settling in Los Angeles in 1917. In that year he became a teacher at the Otis Art Institute and, upon retirement in 1948, was dean of that school. His paintings and illustrations are mostly of people, their activities, and historical Indian subjects. Shrader was also an accomplished cellist and played with several string quartets. He lived in La Canada, California until his demise on January 18, 1960.
