Native Chicagoan John Groth became the first Art Director for Esquire Magazine in 1933. Over the years he became one of the most accomplished and best known American illustrators. He went to Europe during World War II as a correspondent and artist for The Chicago Sun. His first story was the liberation of Paris, in which he got a scoop by riding in the first jeep to enter the city.

Groth covered five other wars, including Vietnam. He considered his best work to be his illustration of a Heritage Press edition of ''All Quiet on the Western Front.''

His work is in collections around the world, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Art Institute of Chicago.
