Ernest Dudley Chase (1878–1966) was one of the most prolific of the mid-century mapmakers, publishing some fifty maps in the 1930s to the 1960s. His maps cover a broad range of geographical locations and varied topics including historical and current events, architecture, and technology. They typically incorporate large numbers of minutely rendered illustrations with explanatory captions that blend a scholarly approach with wit.
