Brown (1881-1966), an artist for The Saturday Evening Post, wasa school drop-out who got his start in drawing by selling his sketches to newspapers while working on a steamer. He got a job drawing at The Saturday Evening Post after tagging along with a friend who was covering a circus for the magazine. Brown worked for The Saturday Evening Post for 40 years, with his pencils appearing in most issues starting in the late 1910's. He also drew story art for other magazines and book art for books, as well as drawing patriotic posters during World War I.
