Horatio Nelson Poole (1884-1949) learned etching at the age of 10, where he studied at the Philadelphia School of Industrial Design. He studied for six years at the Philadelphia Academy of Fine Art as a pupil of Thomas Anshutz. In 1914, he moved to Hawaii and supported himself working as a newspaper cartoonist (1914-1917 for the Honolulu Star Bulletin, and in 1917-18 for the Honolulu Advertiser). During this time, Poole worked on developing his skills as an etcher. By 1918, Poole was one of the most prominent members of the Hawaiian Society of Artists. In 1921, he left Hawaii for San Francisco, California where he joined the faculty of the California School of Fine Arts and continued painting, etching and creating until his death in 1949.
