Charles Murray Pitman KC JP (8 January 1872 – 13 October 1948) was a British judge and while at Oxford he rowed with the university crew to four victories in the Oxford and Cambridge Boat Races of 1892, 1893, 1894 and 1895.

Sir Leslie Matthew Ward (1851 – 1922) was a British portrait artist and caricaturist who over four decades painted 1,325 portraits which were regularly published by Vanity Fair, under the pseudonyms "Spy" and "Drawl". Such was his influence in the genre that all Vanity Fair caricatures are sometimes referred to as "Spy Cartoons" regardless of who the artist actually was. The portraits were produced as watercolours and turned into chromolithographs for publication in the magazine. These were then usually reproduced on better paper and sold as prints.
