Harriet Elisabeth Beecher Stowe (1811 – 1896) was an American abolitionist and author. She is best known for her bestselling novel Uncle Tom's Cabin (1852), which depicts the harsh conditions affecting enslaved African Americans. The book became enormously influential by energizing anti-slavery forces in the American North, while provoking widespread anger in the South.
The distinguished Illustrator, Miguel Covarrubias (1904 — 1957), was a Mexican painter, caricaturist, ethnologist and art historian.
