On this day, April 18, 1884, illustrator Frank R. Paul was born in Vienna, Austria. Paul came to the U. S. to study architecture in New York. Unable to find a job, Paul worked first for newspapers and then for publisher Hugo Gernsback. Paul’s early contributions to the visual worlds of science fiction have caused him to be called ‘the Father of Modern Science Fiction Illustration.’
