Sherman F. Denton, Fish Prints from the
Forest, Fish and Game Commision NYS Annual Report 1895-1900

Sherman Foote Denton (1856-1937) is best known for the nature drawings that he was commissioned to illustrate for the US Fish Commission (later the US Fish and Wildlife Service) and the Forest, Fish and Game Commission of New York State.  Born in Wellesley, Massachusetts, S.F. Denton was a multi-talented artist, scientist and skilled entrepeneur in business. From a family of naturalists, Sherman, along with his brothers William, Winsford and Shelley (a noted naturalist in his time) became famous at the 1900 Paris Exposition for their award-winning moth and butterfly collections. Sherman Denton was also renowned among the leading naturalists of his day for developing and patenting methods to preserve fish, butterfiles and moths in a much more life-like state.
