Herman Stoddard Vice (1884-1956)

Painter and illustrator Herman Stoddard Vice was born on June 21, 1884, in Jefferson, Indiana, a small town west of Frankfurt. He attended the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts and was an artist closely associated with Chicago. Vice was a member of the Illinois Academy of Fine Arts, the South Side Art Association, and the Romany Club, as well as the Palette and Chisel Club and the Hoosier Salon. I don't know much more more about him, but I can say that he died on November 29, 1956, in Marion, Indiana, and was buried far from home at Grandview Cemetery in Southmont, Pennsylvania.
