Howard Seymour Stern was born in Charlotte, North Carolina. He moved to Little Rock (Pulaski County) with his family in 1913. Stern was a physician, a noted photographer, and an award-winning painter. Although he had no professional training in art, his paintings and photographs continue to be displayed in various collections in Arkansas and around the world. His father, an architect, was half the partnership of Mann and Stern, which designed Little Rock Central High School, the Albert Pike Hotel, the Arkansas Consistory, the Arlington Hotel, and the Fordyce Bath House.
