Richard Baker Furman



As a child, Richard created books, journals, and newspapers to entertain himself (and perhaps to practice his reading, writing and arithmetic), and filled them with his own drawings, fables, and short stories. The samples that survive in the Furman Family Papers date from around 1872 to 1873, when Richard would have been about 7 or 8 years old.
