Pen and ink drawing by Myron A. Waterman (1855-1937) of child crawling on the floor. Study for a illustration accompanying Albert Bigelow Paine's poem "The Organist" in the 1893 compilation by Paine and William Allen White titled "Rhymes by Two Friends." See 2012.78.6 for the final proof. Waterman first gained recognition as a political cartoonist and illustrator in the early 1890s while working as the editor of the Fort Scott Lantern. He held a number of other occupations throughout his life including working in the drug store business and serving as a deputy state bank commissioner of Kansas from 1894 to 1901. Waterman was a staunch prohibitionist and a member of the First Congregational Church in Topeka, Kansas, moving there from Fort Scott in 1893. In 1901 or 1902 he relocated to Kansas City, Kansas.
