A native of Illinois, Harry Anthony DeYoung studied at the Art Institute of Chicago and at the University of Illinois. After serving in the Army during World War I, De Young directed summer art schools in Illinois, Wisconsin and Texas. DeYoung eventually settled in Texas, where he continued to teach and earn important awards and public commissions, especially for his portraits of notable Texas heroes. DeYoungÕs portrait of Davy Crockett, for example, hangs in the Alamo, and his murals can be seen throughout the state, most notably in San Antonio at the Witte Memorial Museum.
