Humphrey and other women from Cooper Union are considered some of the first women to receive recognition as illustrators in the United States.
After attending Cooper Union, Humphrey illustrated for various magazines and books, including both children's and general magazines. She designed greeting cards, gift books, and other paper goods for publishers L. Prang and Company—where she was a staff illustrator—and Lee and Shepard. After her death, Prang published a memorial book of her artwork. 

The author: Amanda Bartlett Harris (August 15, 1824 – January 13, 1917) was an American author and literary critic best known for her work in children's, educational, and nature literature.
