William Meade Prince
William Meade Prince grew up in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. He reportedly could not choose between West Point, or architecture at Georgia Institute of Technology, so he settled it by going North to study art at the New York School of Fine and Applied Arts. Later, Prince returned to Chapel Hill where he built his own studio and stables and continued to do illustration. He was particularly noted for his Dodge Brothers car ads. For several years, Prince also taught illustration and figure drawing at the University of North Carolina and was head of the Art Department there from 1943-1946.
