American illustrator, teacher, and writer of books primarily for young audiences.

The first day of class:

"There we four... my new cronies; Allen Tupper True, George Harding, Gordon McCouch and I... Made our first sketches from a model, and our efforts were frightful to behold! Not one of us had had a palette in our hands ever before. I had not the least idea as to procedure. My attempts were terrifying to behold, and when H.P. came to me to criticize my work he paused for a long, long time before speaking, and I know that he must have been appalled."

-Thornton Oakley; from a talk given at the Free Library in Philadelphia in 1951.
