Alfred Waldron (born 1912) was a printmaker noted for his linocuts and wood engravings in the 1930s and 1940s.  Waldron appears to have been from the Birmingham area and moved to the Channel Island of Sark circa 1934.  A small colony of artists had settled there circa 1932 including Mervyn Peake and Eric Sowerby Drake.  The painter and printmaker Guy Malet was also active in Sark in the 1930s. Drake built a small art gallery on the island and Alfred Waldron was one of the exhibitors in the Sark shows.  Waldron also showed his work widely in North America including in the British Pavilion at the World’s Fair in New York 1939, National Gallery of Canada 1939, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston 1940, and the Arts Club of Chicago 1940. He also showed widely in South America in 1943 and 1944.  There is more information about the artist on the website of The British Council.
