From the very beginning William and Anna Dove of Canandaigua, New York, had ambitions for their firstborn. For starters, they named him Arthur Garfield, after the two Republican presidential contenders who had been nominated just weeks earlier in Chicago (on the 36th ballot!). The youngster showed considerable talent and interest in drawing and took lessons locally, but his father, who ran a successful contracting business and who was active in local politics in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York, had decided on law as a career for his son; the youth attended first Hobart College in Geneva, New York, and then Cornell University in Ithaca, from which he graduated in 1903. In spite of his father's wishes, however, art prevailed and the 23-year-old Arthur Garfield Dove (1880-1946) was soon working as an illustrator for some of the major periodicals of the time.
