"At the height of her career, May Wilson Preston was one of the highest paid illustrators in America. Her illustrations were seen weekly in the SATURDAY EVENING POST, and her name was well known. She and her husband, James Preston, lived in New York City and entertained the "literary and artistic celebrities of the day. They were elegant, talented, and fun to be around."

Her birth name was Mary W Wilson but she was called May most of her life. However, confusion has existed with her signa (showing 500 of 2640 characters).

May Preston is also mentioned in these AskART essays:
New York Armory Show of 1913
San Francisco Panama-Pacific Exhibition 1915
