Walter Dorwin Teague

Walter Dorwin Teague (1883-1960) was born in Pendleton, Indiana. He studied at The Art Students League in New York from 1903 through 1907. After four years with an advertising agency, he began to freelance. In 1926 he opened his agency devoted to industrial design. In 1927-28 he started a life-long relationship with Eastman Kodak. His success with Kodak, the 1930 Marmon Car, exhibits for the 1939 New York World’s Fair, and the 1939 Golden Gate International Exposition, San Francisco, overshadowed his American Art Deco work for Sparton (Sparks Worthington) and Hastings (a line of furniture).
