Bio:
Homer William Fleming was born on October 10, 1882 in Maplewood, New Jersey. He was the third son of Thomas and Mary. Thomas (1853-1931) was a political cartoonist who worked primarily for the "New York World", "New York Sun", and "Commercial Advertiser". He also had four books of cartoons published of which two were devoted to Washington, D.C. Around 1916 Thomas started an art syndicate in Newark, New Jersey. Homer's oldest brother, Thomas, Jr., was also a cartoonist; he was a cartoonist on the "Newark Evening News" when he died of heart disease in 1918.

Homer attended the Phoenix Art Institute and the Grand Central School of Art in New York. In 1920 he married Alice Waterfield. Around 1925 their first and only child, Robert, was born. According to "Who's Who of American Comic Books" Homer's comics career spanned from 1936 to 1951.

One of Homer's non-comics work was a wash illustration he contributed to the 1948 book," Maplewood Past and Present"; the title of the work was "The Fleming House." A photograph of Homer, at the piano, accompanying his wife, Alice, and her classmates at a high school reunion was printed in the Images of America book, "Maplewood", in 1999.

Homer died on January 21, 1967; he was buried in Bridgeport, Connecticut.

(Research by Alex Jay; biographical information was based on the 1900, 1910 and 1930 U.S. Federal Censuses, the Social Security Death Index, and the January 23, 1967 obituary in "The Evening Times" of Trenton, New Jersey.)
