Hobart Chatfield Chatfield-Taylor (March 24, 1865 - January 17, 1945) was an American writer, novelist, and biographer. He was considered a top authority on Molière.
Carlo de Fornaro (sometimes spelled Carlo di Fornaro) (1872–1949) was an artist, caricaturist, writer, humorist, and revolutionary.
His work is in the collection of the US National Gallery of Art and Harvard's Fogg Art Museum. His caricatures have been compared to those of Sem, Leonetto Cappiello, and Carlo Pellegrini.
His 1902 book Millionaires of America contains color caricatures of the captains of American industry.
