On this day, August 28, 1849, illustrator Rufus Fairchild Zogbaum was born in Charleston, South Carolina. He studied at the Art Students League in New York and with Léon Bonnat in Paris at the Académie Julian. Zogbaum was a staff artist for Harper’s Weekly at a time when they mostly hired freelance illustrators. In addition to creating his own illustrations for the magazine he was often called upon to redraw the submissions by others.
