Biography   William Hill


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.
