Allan Brooks was a naturalist and artist who illustrated many books in the early part of the twentieth century. He lived in a cabin on Okanagan Lake in British Columbia, studying and painting birds. In 1906, he painted illustrations for the The Birds of Washington by William Leon Dawson, which was published in 1909. Eventually he illustrated thousands of birds from around the world.
