Harry Frank Lambert was born in England in 1879, migrated with his parents to Canada and eventually to St. Louis, MO. He apprenticed in ornamental design and gravitated toward lithography. He worked eventually as a lay-out artist for an agency that handled such accounts as Anheuser-Busch, Coca Cola, and General Tires. Moving up the ranks, he became responsible, along with its creator, for the development of Coca Cola's well known Santa Claus image. Harry Lambert passed away in 1950.
