John Henry "Hy" Hintermeister


John Henry "Hy" Hintermeister was born in 1869 in Winterthur, Switzerland.  After studying art at the University of Zurich, John turned down a teaching position in favor of immigrating to the United States where he found work as a courtroom artist for a local New York paper.
