Harrison Fisher "The Father of a Thousand Girls", was an American commercial artist.
He was born in Brooklyn, New York City but spent most of his youth in San Francisco until he turned 21 years old. He then moved back to New York where he began his highly successful career as a magazine illustrator. His illustrations appeared on the cover of Cosmopolitan magazine from the early 1900s through 1934.
Harrison Fisher never married, but his secretary, Kate Clemens, was also his lifetime partner.
During World War One Harrison Fisher showed his patriotism by illustrating posters for the US government, free of charge. In one newspaper article he was quoted as lamenting that he drew women almost exclusively, but that is what the market demanded.
