The subject was the son of Samuel Maverick and Clara (Reynolds) Maverick. Like his father before him he became an engraver, but after 1856 he added lithography to his skills. In 1866 he entered into partnership with Louis Stephan, and in 1878 with J. G. Wissinger. The lithographic firm of Maverick and Wissinger survived into the first half of the twentieth century.
