About the Author

William Foster-Harris was many things in his lifetime, including an educator, an oilman, the editor of an oil-related newspaper, and an author. He founded the Oklahoma
Professional Writing Award in 1963 to honor life's achievement of "literary excellence in the Oklahoma manner."

Evelyn Curro was born Evelyn Rose Malone, on
December 19, 1907, in Indian territory, just outside Spokane,
Washington. When her mother died in 1930, Evelyn took her five-year-old half-sister and went to South America to stay with a family friend.
While working as a secretary to a newspaper sportswriter in
Panama in 1932, she met and married Anthony Curro, a visiting American prizefighter, and in 1933, she gave birth to their daughter Marta,
in Mexico City. After returning to the states in 1935, the couple eventually divorced, and, living in San Francisco with her daughter, Evelyn Curro began to become well-known, as "Evelyn Curro, Cable Car Artist", for her drawings of same, and later Victorian architecture, fire engines, railroad cars, circus wagons, automobiles, and paddle wheel steamboats. In 1970 she moved to Portugal, where she lived until her death in 2005.
