Harry Rountree (26 January 1878 – 26 September 1950) was a prolific illustrator working in England around the turn of the 20th century. Born in Auckland, New Zealand, he moved to London in 1901, when he was 23 years old.
Harry Rountree was born in 1878 to Irish banker, Stephen Gilbert Rountree (5 November 1851 - 9 September 1918) and Julia Bartley (24 December 1851 - 29 October 1930), the niece of prominent New Zealand architect Edward Bartley.
Rountree was educated at Auckland’s Queen’s College.
Rountree is noted for his illustrations of British golf courses and golfing caricatures.
Rountree produced well-liked cartoons for the magazine Punch from 1905 to 1939, and also created advertising, posters and book illustrations for writers such as P. G. Wodehouse and Arthur Conan Doyle. 
Largely forgotten, and living in poverty, Rountree died in St Ives, Cornwall in 1950.
