Allen Saalburg was born June 25, 1899 in Rochelle, Illinois. His father was a newspaper cartoonist and printer. Saalburg studied painting at Pratt Institute, and with William Sloan at the Art Students League. His image of the tattered flag, designed for the U.S. Office of War Information, was one of the first posters that agency produced in the aftermath of the attack on Pearl Harbor.
