Finding an artist signed stamp can be difficult, but they are around. Finding an artists one of a kind actual hunting stamps is another issue. This is a group of eight stamps used by famous artist Robert Hines.
ROBERT W. HINES was born in Columbus, Ohio on February 6, 1912. He attended the local schools there and in Fremont, Ohio where his family moved in 1921. He graduated from Fremont Ross High School in 1926.
Early in 1939, Mr. Hines was accepted for a job as staff artist for the Ohio division of Conservation in Columbus, Ohio.
Nine years later, Mr. Hines landed a job as an artist-illustrator with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in Washington. There, his first supervisor was Miss Rachel Carson who at the time was just publishing her epic, _The Sea Around Us_. Later, another famous book by Miss Carson, _The Edge of the Sea_, was illustrated by Mr. Hines.
Mr. Hines worked for a highly scientific organization and consequently had to make his work extremely accurate. His travels took him to all but three states. During his travels, he spent time sketching, taking photographs, and gathering data for his illustrations. He served as consultant and administrator for the Duck Stamp contest and painted three huge wildlife murals for the Interior Building in Washington, D.C. In recognition of his ability, he received three Meritorious Awards from the Department of the Interior.
In private life, Mr. Hines was a man with great personal charm, and a deceptively relaxed almost sleepy manner. He was married with three children. He enjoyed hunting, fishing and photography in his spare time.
Mr. Hines designed the first of four stamps in the Wildlife conservation Postage Stamp Series and was one of the two men who helped inaugurate the series. The four stamps in the series are Wild Turkey, Pronghorn Antelope, King Salmon, and Whooping Crane. The British philatelic press selected the crane stamp as one of the ten best stamps in the world for 1957.
Mr. Hines wrote and illustrated_ Ducks at a Distance_, which was published by the he Bureau of Sport Fisheries and Wildlife. He has also done illustrations for _Wildlife in America_ by Mattheisson, _North American Waterfowl_ by Day, _Alaska's Animals and Fishes_ by Dufresne, _Raw North_ by Gillham, _The Upland, Game Hunters Bible_ by Holland, _Migration of Birds_ by Lincoln, _Picture Primer of Attracting Birds_ by Mason, _Bass Fishing in America_ by Bauer, _Crusade for Wildlife_ by Arefethan, _Outdoors Unlimited_ by the Outdoor Writers Association of America, _Pheasants in North America_ by Allan, _Honker_ by McClung, _Face of North America_ by Farb, _Waterfowl Tomorrow _and_ Birds in Our Lives_, both publications of the Bureau of Sport Fisheries and Wildlife.
Mr. Hines' drawings and paintings have been reproduced by conservation magazines in every state in the union, in Canada and even in the Soviet Union.
Mr. Hines died November 6, 1994 in Falls Church, Virginia.
