Frederick S. Dellenbaugh was an explorer and painter. From 1871 to 1873, he was artist and assistant topographer with Major Powell's second expedition down the Colorado River. That expedition discovered the last unknown river in the United States, the Escalante River and the previously undiscovered Henry Mountains located in south-central Utah north of Lake Powell.
