Raymond G. Dandridge
 Born in Cincinnati in 1883 (though some sources say 1882), Raymond Garfield Dandridge attended public schools, including Hughes Night High School where he was active in sports. After graduation, he became a house painter and decorator. In 1911, at the age of 29, he was stricken with polio that left his legs and right arm paralyzed. Confined to his bed, Dandridge began soliciting orders for a coal company via the telephone.  
As an outlet for his artistic talents, Dandridge tried composing poetry. Soon, some of his poems were printed in newspapers and magazines. With help from his friends, his works were compiled into three volumes: Penciled Poems in 1917, The Poet and Other Poems in 1920, and Zalka Peetruza and Other Poems in 1928. Dandridge's poems also appeared in anthologies of African American poetry, such as The Book of American Negro Poetry.
