Howard Schroeder

Howard S. Schroeder was born in the Bronx in 1910.  He was stationed at Fort Miles in Lewes, Delaware during World War II.  He and his wife Marian stayed in Lewes after the war, raising six children while Howard built his formidable reputation as an artist and art teacher.
Schroeder’s “Self-portrait with Beret”
He was best known, during his 84 years, for portraits of Delaware's waterfront, small towns, marshes and farms. They're scenes that you won't always find today, because, in his words, of all the "growth, progress and cement: hundreds of thousands of acres of cement."
