(1863 - 1935)
British born (but American), a humorist writer, illustrator, who is as well known for his poems and quotes as for his artwork for books and slicks. For the latter, a long run in both the Mentor (Jill and Tobey) and Ladies' Home Journal. Usually signed his art "OHerford." Nicknamed "The American Oscar Wilde."
