Author Biography

A graduate of the Art Institute of Chicago, Charles Turzak worked for a variety of New Deal programs during the Depression, including a WPA-sponsored woodcut series, The History of Illinois. For his graphic art biography of Lincoln, Turzak cut the woodblocks and printed pages in full view of the public at the 1933 Century of Progress Chicago World's Fair.
