Rabjohn, Russell Hughes. Born Jan. 1, 1898, died Dec. 31, 1977.
Russell left school after about grade 8 about to pursue an art career. He signed onto a 5-year apprenticeship with J. L. Jones Engraving Company in
Toronto, while continuing his art training at the Normal School and the Ontario College of Art. His art education was interrupted in 1916 when he joined the army. While stationed in Europe, he kept a diary. Following his discharge, he rejoined J. L. Jones. After experience with several other art companies, he established his own company in 1926, Rabjohn Advertising Artists. In 1930, Rabjohn Illustrators Ltd. was established, and was incorporated in 1934. Rabjohn Illustrators was a prominent commercial art firm serving many well known Toronto businesses for 3 decades. In 1963, Russell went into semi retirement. He illustrated his war diary, and published "A Canadian Soldier's Diary" in 1977. The diary and illustrations are in the collection of the Canadian War Museum. He continued his art on a freelance basis until the year of his death. [source: grandson]

Rae, George Menendez - born ca. 1913; died 1992
"George Rae was born in New York City, but lived most of his life in Canada. During the 1940s and 1950s, Rae was active as a freelance illustrator and designer. His work appeared in a variety of publications, including comic books and pulp magazines. He was also responsible for the artwork featured in a noted set of trading cards – Lowney's Sports: Yesterday and Today. In March 1943, Rae's national superhero, Canada Jack, made his debut in Educational Projects' Canadian Heroes. Although Rae was one of the most accomplished artists active during the Canadian Golden Age of Comics, he had no desire to continue working in the comics field following the demise of Educational Projects in the late 1940s. Later in his career, Rae became increasingly active as a fine artist, working in oils, watercolours and acrylics. A former president of the Arts Club of Montreal, he was particularly noted for his contributions to the arts in his home community of St. Bruno. His paintings are included in numerous corporate and private collections throughout North America." [source - John Bell, Collections Canada http://collectionscanada.gc.ca/superheroes/t3-403-e.html]

Ranson , David,
"a well renowned Winnipeg artist whose aviation works have been featured throughout Winnipeg including the Western Canada Aviation Museum and Portage Place. Like his subject, Mr. Ranson’s life tells a tumultuous tale of conflict and victory. Mr. Ransom is blind in one eye from an accident in his youth, was born colour-blind and suffers severe tremors in his right arm that has forced him to slow down his artwork. … Mr. Ranson became most reputable as a political cartoonist and a war artist with the Winnipeg Free Press. His early childhood love for art has brought Mr. Ranson to such career paths as a freelance artist in Montreal to a commercial artist for Air Canada. David Ranson’s works are currently on display in Aviation Museum, in the foyer of 1 CAD headquarters, and in the library of the new 17 Wing Museum." [source - Wing News, Dept National Defense]
