Harry L. Gage died in Gloucester, Massachusetts in August, 1982. His early specialty was printing itself- yes printing. He was a graphic designer, and graphic arts consultant, specializing in typography design, printing processes and presses. Later in life he turned to watercolors, many of which were reproduced in various publications including Yankee Magazine inserts.
