Frank E. Schoonover was born August 19, 1877 in Oxford, New Jersey. His family settled in Trenton, New Jersey near the Delaware River. As a youth he spent part of each summer with his grandmother in Bushkill, Pike County, Pennsylvania, where he was attracted to the surrounding fields and streams and some of his earliest memories and drawings were of those subjects. In 1891, he graduated with high honors from high school in Trenton, New Jersey, where he gave the salutatory address. After considering the idea of entering the ministry, he decided, in 1896, to attend art school at the Drexel Institute in Philadelphia where he studied under Howard Pyle, who eventually became a friend and confidant.
