Phil S. McCarty (fl. c. 1927 - 1950), often as P. S. McCarty, was an illustrator active in Los Angeles from the late 1920s through the 1940s. He may be the same P. S. McCarty who worked for the Menasha Printing and Cartoon Company in Wisconsin and the Direct Advertising Corporation in Indianapolis in the 1910s and 1920s, respectively. At any rate, Phil S. McCarty appears in city directories and government records from 1927 in Los Angeles and San Gabriel. In at least one instance, he is listed as an 'elevator operator' instead of an artist, suggesting he had trouble establishing himself, perhaps due to the Great Depression. McCarty's style fits well with pictorial maps of the era, and the limited amount of his known work appeared in brochures for attractions in the L.A. area, such as Catalina Island and the Mission San Gabriel. He does not appear to have any relation to contemporary California artist Lea McCarty, who also produced pictorial maps.
