Artist Profile: Robert C. Sherry (1920 — 1987)

I certainly do wish that I could tell you more about Robert C. Sherry, other than the dates of his birth and death and that he was born in New York City.  According to the biography at Askart, he flew for the Navy’s Material Air Transport Service during World War II and, after the war, he worked for King’s Features and ghosted for several comic strip artists.  He became the art director for Link Aviation in 1962 and worked there for 20 years.

The entertaining sci-fi covers below, all of which are credited to Sherry, are all from the early 1940s.
