Earl MacPherson, the creator of the Artist's Sketch Pad
style of pinup artwork, was born in August, 1910. He was born on his
grandparents' farm and his father, who was short of money, apparently paid
the country doctor for the delivery with a pig. His father started to teach
Earl to draw and in 1916 they moved to California in search of the good life
(and an art teacher for Earl).
