The following information was submitted by Stefanie Cullen:

Homer Hill is an artist. I know that he was a friend with Norman Rockwell. He was born in 1917 in Newark, New Jersey.  He died in 1968 in Livingston, New Jersey.

He is known as an Illustrator, commercial artist, and designer.  Homer Hill is listed in the 1966 edition of Who's Who is American Art from the American Federation of Arts, edited by Dorothy B. Gilbert and published by R.R. Bowker Company, New York & London, 1966. The listing explains that his work is held at the Newark Museum in Newark, NJ. 

Hill was well known as a member of the Society of Illustrators, an organization that continues to be prestigious today. He had a one-man show there in 1965, and exhibited at the Montclair Art Museum, the Riverside Museum and the Highgate Gallery.

Many of his paintings were donated to the U.S. Air Force Documentary Art Collection.
