Stuart Travis was born in Newark, NJ. An artist, he attended the Académie Julian in Paris, France, and around the turn of the 20th century established a studio in New York City, NY. He was well known as an illustrator, designer, and cartographer. Some of his illustrations of women's fashion appeared in Vogue magazine, and he created a series of pictorial maps for White Star Line private yachts and steamships. In 1928, he was invited to paint a mural for Phillips Academy in Andover, MA. Following the completion of that project, a historical map of the school and the town of Andover, he stayed on, essentially serving as the school's artist-in-residence until his death. He completed two other murals during that time, including "Culture Areas of North America" for the Robert S. Peabody Foundation for Archaeology (Phillips Academy Department of Archaeology; Robert S. Peabody Museum of Archaeology). Travis is buried in the cemetery located on the grounds of Phillips Academy.
