Samuel Finley Morse Badger (1873-1919)
Return to Collection  :: Return to Steam Ships  

The artist, misidentified in various reference books as Samuel Finley Morse Badger, is listed as Solon Francis Montecello on his birth and death certificates and many entries in Boston directories of the period. The mistake likely arose when it was assumed the artist was named for the inventor of the Morse code, who like Badger, hailed from Charlestown, Massachusetts..
