Life magazine covers were on a variety of topics. Each issue had a theme that was introduced by the cover and reflected throughout the issue. This issue had the "Story of the Flag" on the cover.
While definitive information has not been found, an Australian artist living in America named Reginald G. Russom may be the same. It is known that the Australian artist signed paintings R. G. Russom, and was a founding member of the Australian Cartoonists Association. There is some dispute about the year he was born, but he was educated at the Sydney Art School and moved to the United States, where he was active as an illustrator of numerous books and also drew cartoons for various publications including Life. The cartoons he drew for Life were often with themes of futuristic mass transportation. He died in 1952.
