Eugene Field, a native of St. Louis, attended Lombard College (since merged with Knox College) and moved to Chicago, where he became a columnist. His column, "Sharps and Flats," ran from 1883 to 1885. He wrote sentimental and children’s poetry, including the well-known "Little Boy Blue" and "Dutch Lullaby."
