Orrin Draver was born in Alliance, Nebraska, and moved with his family to Winchester, Indiana, then to Richmond, as a boy. At age 16, he was drawing cartoons on his father’s office walls, changing them weekly, and receiving praise for his talent. He joined his father in the family milling machine business, and became Vice-President. He moved to New York to join another manufacturer, then returned to Richmond and the family business. At his father’s death in 1932, Draver sold the company and devoted himself to painting. Self-taught, he painted principally landscapes with native Indiana beech trees.
