  William "Dad" Martin    
Biography
 

William "Dad" Martin gained fame in the early 1900's through the post card business. He took advantage of the new photographic form of postcards by adding humor to his pictures. He is noted for his oversized produce which dominates much of his postcards. Martin set up his own postcard business in Ottawa, Kansas, which brought him his wealth.*
