Robert W. Hines

Robert W. (Bob) Hines (1912-1994), was an American wildlife artist who had a long career with the United States Fish and Wildlife Service.

Born in Columbus, Ohio, Hines had virtually no formal training in art or in wildlife science, yet by the age of twenty-seven he was working as staff artist with the Ohio Division of Wildlife, and in 1947 (or 1948) he accepted a similar position with the United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS). He illustrated many works for the USFWS, including ''Ducks at a Distance'', ''Migration of Birds'', ''Fifty Birds of Town and City'', ''Wildlife Portrait Series'' (including ''Song Birds'' and ''Alaska''). His illustrations were also used in such works as ''Wildlife in America'' by Peter Matthiessen, ''Ducks, Geese, and Swans of North America'' (both the Bellrose edition and the new 2014 edition by Guy Baldassarre) and in Rachel Carson's ''Under the Sea Wind''.
