James Ralph Ivy was born in 1938 to Charles and Celia Ivy in Mountain View, Stone County, Arkansas. At age seventeen he joined the Army, serving three years in Europe. Upon his return to the United States in 1959, Ivy moved to Pasadena, California to live with his parents and go to college. He later attended the Art Institute of Chicago, Southwest Missouri State University, California State University of Long Beach, and the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Ivy was a features writer and editor for the Northwest Arkansas Times for a period of time in the 1970s and 1980s. It was likely during this experience that he met fellow artist and friend Jan Gosnell, a political cartoonist, who is a contributor to some of the content within this collection. His book Halls of Ivy and the Town Around was published by the University of Arkansas Press in 1984. His journals combine the written word with a unique style of artistry through drawings in various media including ink and felt-tipped pens, in color and black and white.
