Frederick Blaine Humphrey was born in New York state in 1876. He graduated from the University of Nebraska College of Law in 1900 and served in the Nebraska legislature in 1908 and 1909. Humphrey was an amateur photographer who delighted in interacting with his subjects. While he photographed all over the state of Nebraska, his most interesting images come from his work with children in Lincoln, Nebraska.
