"His card bore the name ofHenry Anthony Wilcox, and my uncle had recognized him as the youngest son of an excellent family slightly known to him, who had latterly been studying sculpture at the Rhode Island School of Design...". The Call of Cthulhu.

A 1909 brochure [Lovecraft would have been 19] had this advertisement:
