Artist Edmund Frederick (April 2, 1870 — May 1949) was born in Philadelphia of German ancestry. He completed elementary school, and by 1889, was listed in the Philadelphia city directory as an artist. By 1894, he had established himself in New York.

He illustrated a great number of books, inclusive of these titles: The Unafraid; The Adventures of a Modest Man; The Reason Why; The Enchanted Barn; Quick Action; The Tracer of Lost Persons; The Flying Mercury; The Mainspring; A Man's Hearth; The Palace of Lost Persons; The Green Mouse; The Maker of Opportunities; The Palace of Darkened Windows; Cap'n Warren's Wards; The Seventh Noon; Just for Two; The Splendid Chance; and others. We know that he was a frequent illustrator for The American Weekly and that his illustrations also appeared in Redbook, The Illustrated Sunday Magazine, and Munsey's. The Ethridge Association of Artists, operating in New York and Chicago and offering artistic services to advertising clients, represented him. He also taught art classes and was referred to as "Professor" Edmund Frederick.
