Biographical Text

Before working as a Federal Art Project (FAP) artist, Darby owned an advertising and commercial illustrating business in Atlanta, Georgia. By 1936, Darby was living in Franklin, Virginia, when he was hired by the Works Progress Administration's Federal Project Number 1 to produce illustrations for the Virginia State Commission on Conservation and Development's Division of History and Archaeology. Compensated at a monthly rate of $46.20 by the WPA, Darby rendered more than fifty pen and ink drawings from the photographs during the mid-1930s.
