William Allen Butler (1825 - 1902)
William Allen Butler (February 20, 1825, Albany, New York – September 9, 1902) was an American lawyer and writer of poetical satires. He contributed travel writing and comic writing to The Literary World, a series on 'The Cities of Art and the Early Artists' to the Art Union Bulletin and also wrote for the Democratic Review. His most famous satirical poem, Nothing to Wear, was first published anonymously in Harper's Weekly in 1857 (see 1857 in poetry), though Butler was forced to reveal his name after someone else claimed authorship.
