Paper with five separate small proof prints of drawings by Myron A. Waterman (1855-1937). Left to right, the top row has a church and a scene of a woman walking in a field. The bottom row has an illuminated initial "A" with waves, an illuminated initial "S" with a woman in profile, and a portrait of a bearded man in profile. Test prints for illustrations accompanying Albert Bigelow Paine's poems "The Organist" and "A Dream of the Sea" in the 1893 compilation by Paine and William Allen White titled "Rhymes by Two Friends." 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.
