George and Doris Hauman
George and Doris Hauman were illustrators of children's books. They illustrated a popular 1954 edition of The Little Engine That Could. Although there had been many previous editions of this classic story, "It was the work of George and Doris Hauman that earned The Little Engine the title of being worthy to sit on the same shelf as Alice's Adventures in Wonderland". 
Doris Hauman was born in West Somerville, Massachusetts on August 29, 1898. George and Doris got married in 1924. George lived in a studio apartment right below Doris'. George died in 1961 and Doris died in 1978.
The two decided that because they had so many of the same customers, they were going to start working together on projects. They then began signing all of their illustrations with Doris and George Hauman. Doris would write and help George with the illustrations for the books they would create together. After George's death, Doris worked at the Derby Academy for 14 years where she taught courses in art.
George and Doris had one son.
