From the very beginning, Ed Jaster seemed destined for the art business. His parents met while attending the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in the 1940s, the same school their son would later attend. Subsequently, for some 20 years, Ed owned his own commercial art firm in Chicago, acquiring, trading, and selling world class collections of American photography, illustration art, and vintage comic books. Ed brought his vast experience and expertise in collectibles to Heritage Auctions in 2002.

Graduating summa cum laude from Sewanee University of the South, Meagen McMillan quickly rose to Consignment Director in American Art after joining the Heritage Auctions team in 2014. Meagen’s experience from Consignment Coordinator to Fine Art Cataloger to Junior Specialist and now Director gave her a thorough understanding of the auction industry. With a background in Archaeology and Historical Preservation, she firmly believes in being a good steward by guiding artwork and its consignors through the auction process. A love of American history and literature led Meagen to specialize in Western and Illustration Art. One of Meagen’s strength is building strong relationships with clients, collectors, and the broader art community.
