John Hapgood
John Hapgood  worked as a commercial artist in New York after the war, employed by The New Yorker and others. He was an almost  legendary character to his friends, who recall him living upstairs from Bernard Baruch and going to movies with Katharine Hepburn. He also spent a great deal of time on Block Island, where he lived in a home he called "Hap Hazard." He died in 1995.
