In the Summer 2002 issue of Financial History, The Magazine of the Museum of American Financial History, featured an article on S. Ohrvel Carlson. Beginning in 1958 Mr. Carlson created a series of paintings for American Bank Note, the leading printer of engraved certificates in America. Mr. Carlson's paintings were used on certificates for the New York Stock Exchange and were the first to illustrate the emerging American technologies of the time.

This cover of Pennsylvania Magazine features one of several paintings Mr. Carlson did while painting in Elk County. Seen here is the railroad station on Erie Avenue in St. Marys, PA as it would have appeared in the 1920s.

This 1992 feature from the Gloucester Daily Times shows Mr. Carlson in his studio as well as a sketch he made at the age of twelve of Thomas Edison.
