Born in South Granville, New York on 28 January 1870, Walter Granville-Smith, reportedly produced the first color illustration in America, which appeared in Godey’s Lady Magazine, in conjunction with a story entitled “The Christmas Witch,” by Gertrude Atherton.  Others of his illustrations appeared in such publications as Harper’s, Scribner’s, Truth and Collier’s.  The most popular of these subjects was women depicted in either interio (showing 500 of 4639 characters).
