Ted Wade Images

California historical landmarks such as old ships, railroads, school houses and ranches have been saved for posterity by Ted Wade in one of the oldest art forms known today, stone lithography. Ted Wade was born in 1913 in Walbach, Germany and became a naturalized citizen of the United States in 1939. He started painting and drawing at the age of eight. His career in the fields of commercial art, fine art and art education spans a lifetime. He received a degree in fine art at California School of Fine Art and worked as a staff artist and teacher at the Medical Research Art Department USAF, Butler University, Indiana University, John Herron Art Institute, California College of Arts and Crafts, Long Beach State College, Chapman College and University of California Fullerton. Mr. Wade’s lithographs, etchings, watercolors and oil paintings are represented in many public and private collections throughout the United States. Mr. Wade is now 95 years old and unfortunately has lost a considerable amount of sight and is no longer able to create any more memorable works of art. He still resides in San Marcos. The San Marcos Historical Society Board extends the warmest gratitude to Mr. Wade for allowing the use of his unique work on this web site.
