This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born New York, NY, 1838; died Summit, NJ, 1916. Illustrator. Educated in New York and studied art in Paris. Staff artist for Leslie’s & Harper’s Weekly. Invented process that mechanically adds tints to line engravings, the Ben-Day, in about 1879. Illustrator for Beyond the Mississippi (1967). His five drawings would place him in Kansas, Nevada, and California in 1857-67 if they were drawn on site. It is likely that they were drawn from existing materials.
