On this day, March 7, 1838, illustrator and inventor Benjamin Henry Day, Jr. was born in New York City. After studying in Paris, Day returned to the U. S. and began working for Leslie’s Illustrated Newspaper and Harper’s Weekly. Day contributed more than 20 illustrations to Mark Twain’s A Tramp Abroad but he was perhaps best known as the inventor of Ben-Day dots.
