John Blair, Jr. (1881-1953) Philadelphia, PA  

John Blair worked as a mechanical engineer with the New York architectural firm of Lockwood Green, Inc., Ltd. (Huster 40).

His style of carving displays his father's characteristics, but also features the precision workmanship of an engineer. Blair's black ducks, pintails and scaup assume alert attitudes. Their flattened heads have upholstery tacks for eyes. Blair probably made fewer than thirty decoys, but left his mark in carving history.
