About the Author:

Lawrence Stuckenschneider was born in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, in 1926, but soon moved with his family to Montana. He recounts several incidents of his happy life there that was interrupted by the Second World War.Assigned late in the war to the Philippines, he brought with him a notebook in which he recorded faithfully many scenes of Army life. He responded to the suggestion that he contact Pacific Stars and Stripes and that magazine published many of his wry visual commentaries on the lives of American soldiers in Occupied Japan under the title, "Orientashun."After a few classes at Layton School of Art, Milwaukee, Lawrence went to try his vocation among the Benedictine monks at Saint John's Abbey. Besides work on the abbey's farm, the new "Brother Placid" continued drawing scenes from the life around him.Eventually he began work at Liturgical Press, founded by Saint John's Abbey in 1926. For many years he provided illustrations on Christian themes for the book and serial publications of that Catholic publisher.Later in life, Brother Placid served as an artistic consultant for Midwest parishes called to re-order the sanctuaries of Catholic churches subsequent to Vatican Council II.In retirement, Brother Placid gathered some of the memories of a long, varied life in Soldier, Artist, Monk. It is lavishly illustrated by his own work in black and white with an appendix of color photographs. Brother Placid died at Collegeville on Saturday, 24 February 2007, less than a month after receiving the first copy of Soldier, Artist, Monk. His obituary is online.
