Robert E. Eddy, 1908-2008, began his career in 1928 as a theatrical poster artist at the Lyceum Theater and then at the Eastman Theater in Rochester New York after graduating from the mechanics institute at the University of Rochester. His future employment came with notable advertising agencies on the East Coast and the West Coast and as a member of the National Society of Art Directors. He worked on many well known accounts. He designed a series of " fine art" posters for the California Wine industry in San Francisco. They were executed by his good friend Amado Gonzales. He designed the wine tasting room in Monterrey for Bargetto Wines of Santa Cruz and also designed the labels for their fruit wines. His artistic talents were varied and sought after.

As an avid fly fisherman, his paintings of rivers and the fish they were famous for, became a focus for many years and were presented at flyfishing conclaves, one being in Yellowstone in 1981 where Jimmy and Rosalyn Carter acquired one of his paintings. Eddy was very well known in Santa Cruz, California, his final place of residence.
