On This Day
Painter Harvey Dunn was born today in 1884 at Manchester in Kingsbury County. Dunn grew up in South Dakota, attended South Dakota State University and later enrolled in the Chicago Art Institute. He grew famous for his Saturday Evening Post illustrations and drew combat scenes in Europe during World War I. But his best known works are the prairie landscapes from his youth. The South Dakota Art Museum in Brookings has around 100 Dunns, the largest collection in the world.
