This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in New York, Hill was a resident of Chicago (1917-26), NYC (1927) and San Francisco (1929).  He was the creator of the comic strip Among Us Mortals, which was syndicated nationally from 1916 to 1960.

Joyce K. Schiller, Curator of the Norman Rockwell Museum wrote: "I stumbled across an old bibliographic entry for the early 20th century illustrator William E. Hill. The following book is unusual because you don't often find illustrators as authors. In this case the book is a compilation of some of Hill's weekly cartoons and also some of his writings for the Sunday New York Tribune.

William E. Hill, with text by Franklin P. Adams, Among Us Mortals (New York and Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1917)

Also interesting in Adams' preface for the Hill book he wrote,

"The pictures in this book were drawn by William E. Hill, who was born in New York in 1887 and was graduated from Amherst in 1909. He lives in New York."
