William Charles Henry Wood (1864-1947) was a Canadian historian. Born in Quebec, he was educated in England and Germany. When he returned to Canada in 1887, he received a commission in the 8th Royal Rifles of Quebec. He stayed in the army until his retirement in 1910 and commanded the regiment from 1907 in the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel. After that he achieved more notoriety as a military historian including such books as The Passing of New France: A Chronicle of Montcalm, The Winning of Canada: A Chronicle of Wolfe and The War With the United States: A Chronicle of 1812.

Richard Brompton (1734-1783) was an English portrait painter. He trained with Raphael Mengs in Italy. He set up a career in London, England under the patronage of the Earl of Northampton. Unfortunately he developed a taste for extravagant living and fell into debt. He was rescued from a stay in debtor's prison by the Empress of Russia on whose request he relocated to St. Petersburg. He died there in 1783. (Dictionary of National Biography)

Author Bio for Reynolds, Joshua

Joshua Reynolds (1723-1792) was a English portrait artist. He was one of the greatest European painters of the 18th century and was known for his use of the "Grand Manner" of painting which promoted generalization and idealization of the subject rather than an attention to accuracy and detail.
