Major Caudill came to the 1860s through his involvement with P. Palmer Drygoods and the Civil War Civilian Conference, where he presented.
He is a Fort Wayne, Indiana, native with Kentucky roots. After school in Florida and Indiana, he studied Art at the Chicago Art Institute. His interests center on Art and Cars (yes, capitalized, because that’s it). Major makes his living as a painting contractor in Fort Wayne, but is looking forward to having more time for fine art after retirement later this year.
