Over his long career, Ralph Pallen Coleman illustrated stories by many famous authors including Somerset Maugham, Rex Beach, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Louis Bromfield and Clarence Budington Kelland; this work appeared in most of the magazines.

    Coleman, who was educated at the Philadelphia Museum School of Industrial Art, sold his first illustration to The Saturday Evening Post in 1919. His work appeared regularly thereafter in the Post and other magazines for over twenty years. He also found time in his busy career to paint many portraits and a number of murals in churches in Jenkintown, Lancaster, and Montoursville, Pennsylvania, and in Wilmington, Delaware. In addition, he executed a series of paintings depicting the Life of Christ for the George Washington Memorial Park in White Marsh, Pennsylvania.
