Born in Sacramento, CA on Oct. 11, 1883. Ivory studied at the Mark Hopkins Institute in 1899 and in 1904 he continued with Howard Pyle in Wilmington, DE. Leaving the Pyle enclave in 1909, he shared a studio in nearby Claymont with W. H. D. Koerner, E. Roscoe Shrader, and Herbert Moore. In order to be near his publishers, in 1918 he settled into a studio in NYC in the famous Studio Building at 51 West 10th Street. He became nationally known for his dramatic western illustrations; his career as an illustrator eclipsed after 1928. He died in NYC in 1960.
