He was the brother of Roswell Martin Field. Bill Nye (left) was a humorist and journalist. He wrote many essays, skits, and sketches. He soon began to give comic lectures. He became a Sunday columnist for the New York "World" and his columns were widely syndicated. Bill Nye was a household name in the second half of the nineteenth century.
