Illustrator. He was one of the very last illustrators from the golden age of science fiction. His illustrations graced "The Shadow" and numerous other science fiction and mystery publications in a career that spanned several decades. Cartier was the premier artist for the Fantasy Press and Gnome Press publishing houses working for such authors as Isaac Asimov, L. Ron Hubbard and Walter Gibson of "The Shadow" fame. He drew over 800 illustrations alone for "The Shadow". His career also included more than 200 illustrations for Unknown Magazine and 300 for Astounding Science Fiction. During World War II, Cartier served as an infantryman and heavy machine gunner for a tank battalion in France and Germany. He was wounded in the Battle of the Bulge and again when his hospital train was blown apart. He earned a Purple Heart and Bronze Star for his service. He was still autographing artwork right up to a week before his death from Parkinson's disease.
