Sneaky Signature

May 2024

In the Goetzmann and Sloan article on Edward H. Harriman’s 1899 Alaskan expedition (June/July 1982), you have referred to the “brilliant young bird illustrator” Louis Agassiz Fuertes, and his “charming pictures.” But you failed to identify a colored reproduction of his work as belonging to the artist. Below the magpie in a group of “Overland Friends” on page 79 can be seen the artist’s signature, LA Fuertes.

We hope you enjoy our work.
