Se′ton, Ernest Thompson, lecturer, illustrator and author, was born in South Shields, England, in 1860; but spent his boyhood and youth (from 1866) in Canada and on the western plains. He was educated in Toronto, Canada, and London, England. In 1891 he became naturalist to the government of Manitoba; and wrote not only serious works upon the Birds of Manitoba and the Mammals of Manitoba, but clever and attractive tales for magazines, which purported to be based on actual observation of the ways of animal life. Mr. Seton contributed a number of illustrations to The Century Dictionary. He is the author and illustrator of Art Anatomy of Animals; Wild Animals I have Known; The Trail of the Sandhill Stag; The Biography of a Grizzly; Lobo, Rag and Vixen; Lives of the Hunted; Pictures of Wild Animals; Two Little Savages; and Krag and Johnny Bear.
