About the Author:

Born in New York City in 1924, Fisher is a World War II veteran (1942-1946) who served at home, North Africa and Hawaii with the 30th Topographic Engineers as a photogrammetrist – one who makes topographical maps from aerial photographs. During two years of deployments overseas under orders of the United States Joint Chiefs of Staff, and in cooperation with the British Survey Directorate and the Joint Intelligence Command Pacific Ocean Area, Fisher, a non-commissioned officer, was assigned to the 30th Engineers Battalion Operations. Here he participated in secret missions creating vital ground, dead reckoning, sea and navigational maps.

He later attended Yale University's School of Art, earned BFA and MFA degrees (1949, 1950), was a recipient of Yale's Winchester Fellowship and John Ferguson Weir Prize, and taught Design Theory as a Yale graduate teaching fellow.

His prewar art studies (1932-1942) began at the Heckscher Foundation (NYC), and continued with Moses Soyer (New Art School, NYC); Reginal Marsh (Art Students League, NYC); Olindo Ricci and Serge Chermayeff (Brooklyn College, NYC). He served as the Dean of the Whitney School of Art, and was at the time the youngest academic officer in America.

Fisher has illustrated some 250 books for young readers (1955-2007), authoring 88 of these, a number of which appear in a dozen or more languages. He has designed 10 United States postage stamps and has executed paintings for the Norwalk (CT) Transit District building. He has also served as the President of the Westport Public Library.
