This stylish map was drawn by Richard Edes Harrison (March 11, 1901 – January 5, 1994). Harrison was an American scientific illustrator and cartographer. He was the house cartographer of Fortune and a consultant at Life for almost two decades.
Harrison always considered himself more of an artist than a cartographer, but he had a highly successful career making maps for Fortune and Time. He was from 1936 to 1938 on the staff of Fortune. He worked from the 1940s to the 1950s as a map consultant at the State Department, and was also employed by the Office of Strategic Services, the precursor of the CIA and the Museum of Modern Art.
