John Anton Mallin was a well-known ecclesiastical artist and decorator in Chicago, whose works are found in more than one hundred churches and chapels, as well as several residences, banks, and theaters. His career spanned almost sixty years, from the time he came to Chicago in 1907 until he retired in 1963.
Katherine Mallin is the daughter of Ralph Mallin, the youngest of John Mallin’s children. She has created a website about Mallin’s work based on Mallin’s archival documents, photos, and paintings that were passed down to her from her aunt, Mildred Mallin Fritz. See JohnAMallin.com
