Edward Eggleston (December 10, 1837 – September 3, 1902) was an American historian and novelist.*Biography*Eggleston was born in Vevay, Indiana, to Joseph Cary Eggleston and Mary Jane Craig. The author George Cary Eggleston was his brother. As a child, he was too ill to regularly attend school, so his education was primarily provided by his father. He was ordained as a Methodist minister in 1856.He wrote a number of tales, some of which, especially the "Hoosier" series, attracted much attention. Among these are The Hoosier Schoolmaster, The Hoosier Schoolboy, The End of the World, The Faith Doctor, and Queer Stories for Boys and Girls.His boyhood home at Vevay, known as the Edward and George Cary Eggleston House, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973. His summer home, Owl's Nest, in Lake George, New York, eventually became his year-round home.Eggleston died there in 1902, at the age of 64.Owl's Nest was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1971. Frank Beard, United States (1842-1905), was illustrator, caricaturist and cartoonist. He was the principal illustrator for The Ram’s Horn, an interdenominational social gospel magazine. The Ram’s Horn was published in Chicago, Illinois during the 1890s and the early years of the twentieth century by Frederick L. Chapman & Company.Beard had an active career as an illustrator. His cartoons appeared in Judge, and he illustrated books. In his work, Beard also used sequential art, such as in ‘Puck on the Road’ from 1889. Beard also originated the popular “chalk talk” public lecture, standing on the platform with a roll of paper stretched on an easel before him. With a half-dozen colored crayons in his hand, he transported his audiences with him while drawing pictures illustrating the content of his lecture. Beard drew both single panel cartoons and sequential comics, and also created illustrations for Comic Monthly, Judge and a sister publication of The Ram’s Horn, Our Day.
