I have not been able to find a mini-biography of Lynn Tew Sprague (1855-1929). He was a 1880 graduate of the University of Michigan, LL.B. and an Attorney in Jamestown NY in 1911. He was living at 2400 Dwight Way. Berkeley, Cal in 1923, according to the Catalogue of graduates, non-graduates, officers, and members of  University of Michigan, by Harley Le Roy Sensemann - 1923 and he died 3 Oct 1929 at Oakland California aged 74 (University of Michigan. Alumni Association - 1930). He was a prolific writer and sometimes poet, on a wide variety of outdoor topics, including  hunting, fishing, birds, wildlife  (Do Animals Think?), and other naturist topics, for Outing, Overland monthly and Out West magazine, , Recreation, Bird-Lore, and Forest and Stream among others (Lynn Tew Sprague, "Ethics and the Sportsman," Forest and Stream 58 (June 21,1902))
